I thought this was a great parade because there were no horses. I had several people tell me they felt the same way. The parade didn't run on and on and on...a few horses are okay but some years they were endless and made the streets a mess.

Does anyone know why there were no horses? Were they banned or something?

Horses are not allowed to be in the parade anymore and people are not allowed to throw out candy anymore either. It's in the Downtown Paragould Newsletters. The parade just isn't what it used to be...very disappointed this year.

There weren't horses last year either. We didn't miss them...There should be more floats considering how big the town is.

I also agree.. Should had been more floats.. Thats what is so fun for the kids plus the candy. First parade I have ever went to with no candy.

Liability to the horse riders and the crowd, when someones kid runs under the horse or people trying to get a rider thrown out of meanness. Then you have the mess to clean up, which the ones who do gripe.
Candy someone always gets mad because there little one got hit with candy which causes an issue. Also the liability with giving it out is endless. He or she was allergic they passed so now the city gets sued or kids getting hurt falling over the candy. Someone got more than the other....blah.. Blah this is what our sue happy, liability, gripe infested, selves have came to now in the 2000s. When some can't wait to cash in, others suffer the consequences.

I miss the horses. I understand about the cleanup but its only 1 day a year. One of the dogs pooped all over the road right in front of where we were standing and people drove over it and stepped in it. I hope the dogs go after the walkers next year :)
