An alert “06880” reader sent this along, after yesterday’s Halloween parade on Main Street:
Political candidates forced our kids to advertise for them by showing up with balloons — an item kids “have” to have or there is a meltdown.
In addition to being a slimy way to get their name in pictures, the balloons got tangled in the crowds around the trick-or-treat baskets. Just one more mess for moms to deal with.
It’s a shame when a kid’s event is bombarded with those looking for free advertising. In addition, there were other people passing out flyers for nanny services and cupcake companies. I understand this is their core market, but it really takes away from a kid-friendly event.
Thanks for listening to my rant!
