Letter: Parade prep

As we approach the annual summer parade season, I wanted to take some time to express the true parental agony it is to sit through a city parade with your children. I sometimes wonder if some of the parade entries wake up on that important Saturday morning with the thought, "Isn't that parade thing today?"

Grabbing leftover Halloween candy, throwing the kids in the boat that's being towed behind a company vehicle is not the correct solution to your problem. Sit this parade out and try again next year.

Some businesses just want the attention of being in a parade but have clearly forgotten that a parade is for the spectator and not the participant.
