I took my three-year-old niece to the Downtown Santa Claus Parade.
I was totally disgusted with the parade this year.
There were possibly six floats including Santa’s.
Used to be better
When I was young I can remember the parades to be big and lots of floats.
What is happening here? We have all these big companies coming in with big money and no one can afford to put together a float for the parade?
Even the city’s float was an embarrassment — if you could call it a float.
There were lots of bands, dancing groups and cadets, as well as a load of “celebrities” in Jeeps — heck, there were even more dog groups than floats. What a disgrace.
Open your wallets
Some big companies can give money to radio stations for concerts, why don’t they spend a little to put together a half-decent float?
Just wanted to vent.
By the way, my niece enjoyed the parade, even though she did not grasp it like I did.
