The RCMP had their hands full during this years annual Craven Country Thunder.

Over the course of the weekend the RCMP responded to over 32 calls on the Country Thunder grounds.

 One of the most notable incidents was a case of public nudity on Saturday.

The reality is that other people at the event are watching. While the  RCMP fully supports everyone's desire to have fun and enjoy themselves, we do ask that you please do so, while wearing clothes," the RCMP said in a newrelease.
