I to feel the parade has gone down hill, but again nothing stays the same ! The real gripe I have ....is grown adults blocking a childs view trying to stand as close to the the candy being thrown and filling up buckets and dumping them into a bag at least 3 times, they were there only for the candy and not the parade, no I didn't want the candy I wanted my grandson to be able to see the parade.....come on people the stores are full of candy.

I heard the theme next year is "Prime Time TV Game Shows". Im sure the Sutphins are entering a sure winner of a float called "Who's My Daddy" - a take on the classic "To Tell the Truth" (of course instead of candy, I guess michael could toss pills).

The Woods girls are gonna do their take on the "Gong Show". Carrie, Skylar, and Cassidy will each take turns on the pole. If anyone is nauseated by the performance, they can walk up to the back of the float and strike the gong to get them off the pole. This float will be emceed by the East Side King and is sure to be a crowd favorite.

BYFL and BLLB decided to team together to create a float with the theme from the UK game show "Beg, Borrow, or Steal". To pull this off, they are going to place players and cheerleaders throughout the crowd begging for handouts. League officials will "borrow" gate admission and concession stand revenue and at the end of the night, someone will be accused of stealing the league blind. Screw candy, this float has to toss autographs of Randy Coyle to the crowd.

They r getting their halloween candy. Your child will get one tootsie roll when he knocks on their door this year. It sucks. The idiotic people parking in middle of road and in my personal parking spot in front of my home. Can't even get home from work without a hassle. I've resorted to walking to work on parade day just to save myself the b u l l s h I t. Last year I took my child he got busted in the head with a piece of candy so hard he cried. Screw that.

Now the tootsie rolls are smashed all over the streets and sidewalks looking like little turds. And city workers get overtime for cleaning up the mess. Our tax dollars to good use citizens!

This parade is way over rated, whom ever is choosing the theme's need to take some advice from someone. This should be a fun, family themed event. It is not about the Candy, although as I posted early Grown adults that intend to go nuts over tootsie rolls being thrown need to stay home...like I also stated our view was blocked by some idiotic man whom appeared to have not bathed in sometime running to get candy for his kids. My Grandson is 20 months old and we wanted him to be able to experience the fun of a parade, didn't happen and some of the people throwing candy, threw it way to hard as I had to shield my grandson at one point to keep him from getting hit. Maybe B'ville should just stick to the carnival, but on the other hand I heard that alot of the carnival workers were rude, and not to mention the price of the wrist bands for this rinky dink event, probably better off just not having a fallfest.....!

If you all don't like it, write to the appropriate people and be honest. Try to be tactful. Or better yet, organize a boycott and don't go. They can't have a parade if no one shows up. A parade is supposed to bring people together, not be some silly walking billboard for who kisses who's butt.
