Letter: Things lacking at Autumnfest parade

October 19, 2010

I would like to comment on the Autumnfest parade.
The parade was great more or less, but unfortunately was not without its faults. The day turned out to be a beautiful autumn day, perfect for the parade, which I have watched live for many years from different venues including as a participant. I have worked for some of the food vendors and walked the park many times. I have enjoyed the fireworks displays and watched as the teams have competed for trophies.
