Took my kids to the parade last night, and was truly shocked at the behavior of grown adults and teenagers.Why do people feel it is ok to walk up and stand directly in front of small children completly blocking there view of the parade? Since I do have young children who love the parade I always make sure to get to the parade at least 30min. early so the kids can get to a good spot to watch from only to have other peolpe run up as soon as the parade starts and jump right in front of them like they are not even there.To me the whole point of the parade is for the kids and for them to have a good time. It was really sad to see such selfish, rude and just a general lack of manners in adults and teenagers. Maybe it's just the area where we were standing, may try a different location next year .
