<quoted text>Your BRILLIANT !!!! YES... lets take a tradition we've had for nearly 60 yrs and completely change it !! You MUST be the same person that had the GREAT idea of bringing Walmart to Kewanee, so we could turn the downtown area, into an authentic ghost town !!!! I just LOVE seeing the tumbleweeds when they roll past the saloons. I think that a "gay themed" parade would be awesome too !!!! Your a GENIUS !!!!!!!!!!
8 years???? The carnival has been the same since at least 1980.

Maybe if the women didn't fit the title of hog days people wouldn't complain as much.

maybe a different carnival that is not quite as trashy maybe add a few fetivities in the old hospital parking lot also,the kids in town spend alot of money on hog days,my kids go every day and probably blow 100$ or more each plus their own money,getting rid of the carnival is just a bad idea, maybe adding a few more festivities around town is an awesome idea, also how about a band for the kids that isnt at a bar? better access for the handicapped, perhaps make the vendor sites a little cheaper?

I know our company has contributed to the committee not sure how much or what for and we have no direct benefit from the activities. I wonder what the watering holes contribute, this group brings customers right to their doorstep to spend money has to e worth something I would think.
At the same time, many of the businesses are blocked by the carney crap. That Mexican restaurant doesn't benefit at all with all the carnival crap in front of it. How about moving the bulk of the carnival in front of the Pioneer? Won't happen right? Exactly!

Kewanee is ridiculous. This town grabs a few ideas and holds on to them for dear life. Where are the new ideas? So for over a year and a half we've had to listen to all of this Walldogs stuff. Nice idea. But is that ALL we have? On the tv one channel is devoted to the Walldogs. Gimme a break. So all we have is Hog Days and the Walldogs project? Who's running this dog and pony show?
