Like any family event in this town needs to encourage the use of alcohol....it's on a school prperty so I'm not even sure how they get a permit for the booze.

Stores aren't allowed to sell alcohol close to schools or churces, if they didn't sell alcohol I might take my kids, but it seems there are a lot of ignorant drunks every year.

You are correct that stores are not allowed to sell alcohol within a certain distance from schools. However that is an ordinance that went into effect about 2 or so years ago. It is one reason the Bamboo Bistro never opened.

Now having said that , the businesses in close proximity to schools and churches who already had a liquor liscense were "granfathered" in and allowed to keep their liquor liscense. Otherwise businesses in the Bellemore and Nameoki Commons shopping centers would have to stop selling alcohol. Maybe the "grandfather clause" applies to the church sponsered events also.

There are obviously exceptions to the rule because the Firehouse BBQ sells alcohol and they opened well after the ordinance became effective.

I have taken my grandkids there for the last two years. I have never seen any trouble there or drunks stumbling around. Just normal everyday people enjoying the company of friends. As for it being a fundraiser..true as is the tax free, nonprofit status of the church. I dont know if that makes them exempt from the city ordinance that another poster was questioning. I dont have any idea what actually makes them exempt from the ordinance and truthfully I dont care. Its an event that hundreds of people look forward to every year.

I understand that, but St E would have to get a temp license every year, and that wouldn't be grandfathered in. What school or church is in close proximity to Nameoki Commons?

Oh and for stores it has been in affect for a lot longer than two years. I lived by the Cornet Market about 10 years ago, and they could not get a license due to this rule. I think it was downtown that the rule you are talking about came around, with the revitilization.

I agree that it definitely does get rowdy in the evening but it's something to do for my kid and myself that's different than the usual visit to the park. It's an inexpensive, local event and as long as I take my little one early in the day, I should be able to avoid the drama.

Granite city is not the only place where catholic church carnival/fundraisers take place. They are everywhere, and they all have alcohol. I've went every year since I was a kid and was perfectly safe. No one cares if you don't want to take your kids, they can have carnival time at Wilson park 4th of July weekend.(where beer isn't sold) Enjoy, cranky!
