Fair Parade safety
By LeaAnne Klentzman
The story goes that participants on one float must have thought they were in a Mardi Gras! Yep, there are rules about pitch’n stuff from the floats in this parade– that’s a BIG, uh, NO!! We were told, that they were told, DO NOT throw things from the float – more than once. Humm…no stink’n rules heeded, So… they kept pitch’n.
Well, before that float could even get out of the single digit number streets – the parade starts rolling in on 3rd Street – by 9th Street that float was escorted – by the popo – from the parade route! Yessireeebob, yanked out of the parade for throwing stuff from the float!
For those of you not familiar with Richmond, from 3rd to 9th – that ain’t even down the road a piece, it’s just barley past the review stand.
Yep, Richmond Police and the Fair Parade folks, they got themselves some rules, and apparently….they are gonna be followed! Our hat is off to the enforcers.
By the way – welcome to Richmond, land west of the Brazos where rules are rules and they are enforced!
Those Fair folks, they got themselves some stink’n rules for a reason, and they were made to be followed; that’s what keeps the little children safe.
Parades Rule? Parade Rules? No matter where you put the “s” it’s all about safety
