PARADE MATH: Journalists aren't renowned for their mathematic abilities. But we just had to check the math on the attendance estimate of 30,000 for the Parade of Lights - not because we doubt the event's popularity, but because it appears physically impossible to fit that many people along the route.

The parade route is 1 mile long, which makes for 2 miles of curbs. To accommodate 30,000 people, there would have to be an average of nearly three (2.84) people per foot throughout the entire route to meet the 30,000 mark.
