We gave it a shot, and watched the parade coverage for the first 30 minutes. What an awful job they were doing, and it just magnified how depressing gloomy and sad our community is. Feel sorry for the advertisers that wasted their money on this "event". Watching grass grow is more enjoyable. Another epic FAIL...WKTV!

Dear WKTV,
Can you please review your tape and count how many times you said the word "CONTINGENT"? I could not watch any more of the coverage either as it was just too painful. Is that your word of the day? Please don't humiliate our city any further. Shut off.

Who was the guy doing commentary? Sounded a little slow.

My rep asked me to sponsor the event and I am so glad we didn't. I agree with the first poster it was a waste of money for anyone who spent a dime. Their sales department should be ashamed of themselves for using any excuse to generate $ when businesses get no ROI. Shame on you WKTV

just saw the taping of the parade and the girl singing the national anthem is this the best we can do? the signing was off key and the 3 times her reading her index card was a total disgrace find someone to do the job without reading the words!!! better yet just have a recording of the song. shame on you whoever chose this person.and the commentator to say good job.....really???

Dear, Hilarious , contingent and done, Changing your name to post multiple times so that you look as if someone agrees with you only works if you can change your IP address as well.

I agree - it was the worst St. Patty's Dad Parade of them all. Where were the floats like they had last year where everyone was signing and so happy. Where were the Irish dancers (local group) as well as the Irish Settlers dogs - all last year.

The only music was amaturish at best. This parade was so bad that I didn't waste more than 30 minutes before I left and went home. It certainly wasn't worth the effort of standing in the cold rain to watch.
nothing special

Really...that chick trying to sing the national anthem, looking at card and still getting the words wrong..."through the perilous flight". Next year get a 5th grader and maybe someone who knows what band is walking by. The Proctor band was going by and WKTV announcer says "oh look there goes a band"...Hello...they're from Utica!!!

Will WKTV be drawing the winners for the Utica parade raffle tickets at the 5 or 6 o'clock news? I enjoyed watching the parade on television the day after. Thank you.
