SAN ANTONIO — The annual Barbacoa & Big Red Festival is a food festival in San Antonio, but organizers are happier when visitors leave their knives at home.
Officials said they collected more than 600 weapons Sunday during the event, according to the festival's Facebook page.
"Safety for our patrons is our number one priority. We are very proud to say that not a single altercation or arrest occurred at our festival," a spokesman for the festival wrote on its Facebook page.
Vigilance by festival organizers resulted in no arrests, KENS reported.
Event founder DJTONYC said the delays caused by searching bags for weapons were worth it.
