    First those of you complaining are probably the same ones that complain about the kids at the movie theater. The city is having a good ol parade at least 1 since festival 1 is no longer. As far as parking in front of your drive way if your home go ask them to politely move before they get settled and as if you haven't known about the parade since last year.Plan Ahead

    Please be respectful of the neighborhoods, yards, homeowner's properties, etc., and throw your own trash away when you are done eating, etc. Every year I have to clean up your messes - garbage, fast food bags and soda cups left strewn around the neighbor's lawns, gutters, driveways, etc. We are coming to watch your parade, and how disrespectful is it to leave your trash on our lawns? Plenty disrespectful and rude too.

    Please, float drivers, etc., please don't park in front of homeowner's driveways on an unmarked street. I sure don't appreciate trying to leave my home to get to a meeting - not everybody can make it to the parade due to life's demands - only to find a huge float blocking my driveway and the driver refusing to leave because they are waiting for their turn in the parade line.

    The "No Parking" signs were up early this morning in the neighborhood. I appeal to all people who will be driving in the neighborhood to SLOW DOWN! Every year we see too many cars speeding down the streets AFTER the parade. LPD & Partners need to direct traffic & slow the traffic down before there is a fatality.
