Put the parade back


We have friends who come up from Bridgeport every year to watch the parade. They stay at the Village Motel, and then we would eat at Rancho Grande, and watch the parade going past.

Imagine our surprise last year when we are eating dinner, and there was no parade going past. Our group had been getting bigger every year, which meant business for the shops, because after dinner we walked around. Usually our guests stayed all weekend. This meant we ate at the restaurants and shopped at all the small stores. They aren’t coming this year, because of the changes. The sheriff’s office made the decision to cut the parade route short and leave the places out. It needs to go back to the way it was. It is only a couple of hours out of their schedules and everyone needs to be included.
