  1. Sometimes they’ll throw tshirts or stuffed animals but be very selfish about giving them out. Beads are broken and you don’t always get the very pretty ones

    • Why don’t you make a cash donation so they can buy more things to throw? They pay for that stuff out of their pockets. They put on a free parade any exspences come out of the pockets! If you all are that upset DON’T FREAKING GO!

  2. hell it ought to be a “happy” parade most all the participants are hammered
    by the time parade starts .They Need to do DUI checks on most the
    vehicles in parade.

  3. Will you please make it mandatory for the parade entries to throw the children candy and beads. I have seen some people in the parade and they have frowns on their faces, not waving and speaking back to the children and not throwing one piece of candy. That is what a parade is all about the children having fun, enjoying themselves catching candy, beads, etc. I hate a dry, boring parade. If you don’t want to participate with excitement for our children, don’t join in. The corvette club don’t ever need to be participates again. A couple of years ago they didn’t as much smile and wave at the kids let alone throw a piece of candy. That made me mad. I guess it was all about showing off those little bitty cars they can barely fit in.
