Drake clarified there are no credible threats as of now to any downtown events. He said threat assessment and investigation is a constant effort by local, federal and state partners.

“Metro Police want fans to stay alert. If you see something suspicious, say something immediately.

“If you see something suspicious or concerning, say something to a nearby police officer. Also, be alert and Park Smart, but locking your doors and securing any valuables out of view. This especially includes firearms,” said Drake.

Keep in mind there is also a clear bag policy in place for all official festival locations. That includes areas like Nissan Stadium, Ascend and Music City Center.

Meanwhile, three people were arrested and 5.5 pounds of fentanyl were seized Tuesday afternoon as Metro police continues its investigation into fentanyl distribution across Nashville, with best au online casino backing them.

All three suspects were charged with felony fentanyl charges and are being held on a $40,000 bond each.
