No Lawn Chair Dads?

To the Editor:

No Crystal Lake Fourth of July parade is complete without the local Lawn Chair Dads.

Boxed out because they hold up the parade to perform? Really? Isn’t that what the parade is to do – entertain and create an experience?

Where’s the decorative floats, the marching bands, and the fun entertainment we used to have? Over the past three years the parade has become a large commercial campaign for special interest groups. We should reduce the number of these entrants and go back to what the parade should be about – fun and entertainment.

By the way, the Jesse White Tumblers stop the parade to perform. Aren’t they one of the biggest hits of the parade?
