Bad Press, Good Fox Day

April 21, 2011

This year, Fox Day was hosted at New Smyrna Beach instead of Cocoa Beach because Cocoa Beach authorities were only willing to allow Rollins students on their beach if city officials received 60-days notice ahead of time and if Rollins paid special event fees and paid in advance for on-site police and paramedics.
