Lots of fun. Kids had a great time and I couldn't have asked for better weather.

I thought it was nice. Too bad it wasn't live on cable this year. I would like to see more traditional floats like they used to have, but I guess people don't have time to spend building big floats. Overall, it was good and lots of candy for the kids! Thanks to all that put it together.

It is watered down horrible. The only thing worse..is listening to Dave Rogers call it. Why the hell did I stand by the stage? Remember when they actually had floats? Now you can just slap a cardboard sign on a gator and go! And how about those powerhouse bands they bring in! Green City...(pop. 600) sounded ten times better than big bad Chillicothe!

I miss the decorated floats, too. Lots of walking groups and vehicles, but not much Christmas to it. But since I'm not willing to build a float, guess I really can't complain.

Sydentricker, Barnes Baker, and Woody's using it as a commercial was pretty annoying too.

My guess is if you were to get whatever you asked for you'd find fault with it. People like you are down right "watered down horrible" SH*T yourself!!!

The little girls from Kc, the marching falcons or cobras, I don't remember their name, weren't in it this year. I was dissapointed by that. They are always my favorite.

So Tucker and Bob, are you saying that you are volunteering your time to help build floats? Or you saying you are going to volunteer on the holiday parade committee for the chamber?

All I have to say is when did throwing up a group name together and getting a truck and calling that a float? Some of this groups I've never heard of.
I agree alot of company's use it as commercially but that's any parade.

I don't know who's in charge but it's free to enter so have some rules and regulations?

My guess would be you took a dumbass pill this morning. I'm not going to blow sunshine up your ass and tell you it was a great parade. It sucks, and it has for years.

No, that isn't what I'm saying. You need sunshine up your ass too? I'm saying if I had a reason to enter into the parade, I just might give a shit and build a float. All this talk about not having time...everyone sure had time 20 years ago. Whats changed? It's not about not having time, no one wants to TAKE the time!
