Detroit Lakes Police are preparing for another packed We-Fest weekend with thousands of country fans heading to Soo Pass Ranch. Police are ramping up the number of officers on duty. They say their number one concern is drivers not sober behind the wheel. Traffic will be a problem, so police say pay close attention to signs. Some areas of town have temporary driving restrictions.

Sgt. Robert Strand – Detroit Lakes Police: "You know in the mornings there will be a lot of extra traffic so be patient. We have the traffic set up like we did on the fourth of July, like you won't be able to make a left-hand turn down by the lake."

Police are seeing more car break-ins. They say to stash your valuables, and be sure to lock your doors.
