The parade sucked, the kid rides where horrible, trash over the street, trash walking the streets. Trees broken at Mcdonalds, and now W main street. Obviously, the work of some tough guys walking home after a night drinking at the children's parade.

What the hell was that ignorant black fellow doing carrying a python around the park. In case you didn't know moron children for the most part do not like snakes, and I can't imagine the snake was happy swinging around your neck in a crowded park. Just so you know the talking on the cell phone, smoking, with the snake thing is not a cool look. It is more the look of a ignorant ass.. Where where the police?

What ever happened to our smoke free parks campaign. I watched ride operators strap in kids while smoking.... I seen a couple police, but apparently they where just there to pick up little girls, and not to inforce the laws. What a sad joke this years Canal Days turned out to be.

Great job Little Falls...

C'mon buddy. It's not always all about you.

Like it or not, alchohol has ruined parts of Canal Days. And there's no reason for it at all. In places like the Mannechor -- trust me, I know -- there are no limits. No matter how drunk a guy or woman is, they get served. In fact that is the single purpose for the club on Canal Days.

I didn't see trouble in E Park and actually thought it was quieter than other C Ds. But Main Street is out of control. You can't walk there without being harassed.

Still, on balance, C Ds is still a good thing for LF just because of all the friends we get to see while out and about.

Smoke Free parks? Let's get er done.

Come on Buddy. It's not all about you either. Canal Days would not exist if it wasn't for the bars. They should allow them to stay open all night and let the bands play until 2:00 AM. Since we don't have any industry here, we need to bring money in here somehow and Canal Days does a good job doing it.

"Canal Days" is just an excuse for 'merchants' to set up booths peddleing cheap Chinese-made crap under the guise of "arts and crafts", parade floats that are little more than 'vote for me' political come-ons and the the opportunity for every junk dealer on Main Street to haul their trash out onto the sidewalks.

I would rather be buying American made beer over that Chinese made crap anyday. I might get the genny screamers in the morning, but at least I bought America.

If you want music until 2, find a field somewhere. Like maybe down in the industrial park.

I you want the bars to stay open all night, run for state office.

In the meantime, on Canal Nights, pee in toilets, stop screaming obscenities to others on Main Street, and be a good buddy to the guy next to you -- keep him and her safe. But you don't own the city.

And by the way, the garlic festival brings plenty of traffic, sans booze.

We need more space. Too bad Shoppers Paradise is in the way.

You must have missed this thread about the officers that left since Masi became AC/Chief. He may as well have been chief when Deluca was there. He plowed his way right over Gregg and ran people out then too. Feel free to add anyone who is missing.

That should answer your question. LF is a bit short on cops. Down to 5 at last count. It was 15 just a few years ago, but hey, you are saving money. Hiring from a temp agency is very innovative.
The state police should do that. A temp agency. God that's funny.
Good job Mike.
