Galveston Island Beach Patrol has said beach crowds have been larger than usual since reopening after pandemic closures, however some say the beach was unusually crowded this weekend.

Eased restrictions allowed for Pleasure Pier to reopen on Friday, June 5.

Crowds also headed out to Galveston in an effort to bring back Kappa fraternity’s beach party weekend.

However, the event this weekend was not sanctioned by any chapter of the fraternity, members say.
