To the Editor:
I would like to thank the Christmas In The Park Committee for doing such a wonderful job again this year with the parade along with the mayor and the City Council for allowing the extra patrol by the police department.
Our organization does approximately five parades a year and this is one of the best attended parades.
With that being said, I would like to ask the people attending the parade to respect our fair city and the effort put forth by each parade's organization by pick up after themselves when they leave.
Brazil's Christmas In The Park parade is one of the few parades of that size whose entrants are not required to pay an entry fee, which in turn is used to pay for the cleanup after the parade.
I personally believe the free entrance to be in the parade is one of the reasons this parade continues to grow year after year.
