I don't understand why this tradition is no longer going to be here. I heard that it is insurance reasons. While I believe that if you sign up for the parade to be in it and something happens to you then that is your own fault and you should be responsible no one else. You should have to sign a waiver saying your responsible. We should not take this tradition away from our kids. If it has to do with judging then don't have a contest just do a parade for our kids because they enjoy it no one cares about a contest its for the kids not for us. Just do this for the kids.
