Banning of water battles in Frisco parade dries up fun

As a Summit condo owner, I must express my family’s disappointment in the short-sighted decision to not allow the Super Soaker shooting activities at the Frisco Fourth of July parade.

The official statement I was given by the city representatives at the parade was that there were a “few complaints” last year.

Please remember, parades are for children. They are not for adults, and more importantly, not for Scrooges. The Frisco parade was uniquely “fun” because of the Super Soaker battles between the floats and the kids.

By not allowing it this year, the parade was nothing more than a inexpensive form of advertising for local businesses, clubs, and political parties. All of the children I observed, including my own, were not having nearly as much fun as they have had at prior parades.

I think this holds true for the float operators as well. I would hope that this “ban” will be lifted for next year’s parade. If it is not, my family and my money will be in Breckenridge.
