Ohio judge OK's alcohol, topless women for outdoor festival – Dayton Daily News

A federal judge is giving a popular Columbus festival permission to sell alcohol despite having topless women in attendance.

Comfest will take place June 23-25 at Goodale Park. The festival brands itself as a “free, non-corporate, yearly celebration of Columbus, Ohio’s community organizations, performers, artists and volunteers.

According to The Columbus Dispatch, the festival won a temporary restraining order against the Ohio Department of Public Safety and the Ohio Division of Liquor Control.

“An agent cited the festival last year because there were topless women there,” the Dispatch reported.

“Applying a strip-club regulation to a three-day political festival like ComFest in a public park is ridiculous and unconstitutional,” said Ed Forman, an attorney for ComFest, in a press release. He said the women are “exercising their First Amendment rights.”
