Parade viewing has been historically very low. This gives the parade participants the idea that the parade is over and they start to bail. The Parade Team wanted parade viewers all the way back to Eagleland.
Last year we went before the Board with our request. We were posed a number of good questions, then given the OK from the Board. This spring we included the route change (and time change 9:45-ish on Adams) to quite a number of media outlets.
And the viewers came! While it wasn’t yet crowded, it did have a sizeable number of viewers, and there were many neighbors on their porches celebrating the new route.
Thank you KWA Board!
