Musikfest changes mulled following outbreak of violence

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Bethlehem officials are considering changes to Musikfest following a series of violent crimes near this year's festival.

City officials say they will discuss proposed changes to Musikfest during upcoming meetings with local merchants and ArtsQuest.

One of the changes being discussed is shortening festival hours on Main Street, according to a report by lehighvalleylive.com.

The proposed changes come on the heels of a double shooting and other violent crimes that happened just a few blocks from Musikfest this summer.
