Ok, so the parade that I told my 7 year old about for the last two weeks is not happening because of lack of user participation or lack of people ATTENDING? Because it's far more fun to watch a very short parade in 100+ degree heat then head over for free hot dogs than to sit through a very LONG one. So no. I don't get it. This just sounds like an excuse not to do it due to some other issue that is not being revealed.
I smell a COVER UP!
Really, who cares about the parade. We just want the free food and fun stuff to play on. There may not have been a lot of people in the parade last year, but there WERE a lot of people watching it. Also, last I checked the road outside, that I DRIVE on... there isn't any construction and what there is further down is not that bad.
