There was a great turn out for the Alton Parade this year. But I have never been so disappointed. Between the Policeman that would not let me pick up my husband that is disabled where he was lining up a float for the cub scouts, and the people "begging" for candy...Wow....times have sure changed. I am so sad that no one cares for each other anymore.
I spoke to a lot of police officers since the event and everyone said the same thing. Someone was abusing his authority. The parade officials had just told me and my husband to go on through, when the officer stopped me dead as if I was a murderer. He was very rude. Told me if my husband couldn't walk that I should have a wheelchair and I could go get him. Well I too am disabled, but he did not want to hear that. This was very early in the line up and the road was totally clear. I am not sure if her thought I was going to hijack the parade or what?

Sad moments from the parade.
