Great parade this year! We arrived just as it was starting (sat in front of Walmart) and we thought we'd have to sit on the north, west bound side of the street (where NO ONE was sitting) because there was no room on the south, east bound side (the side the parade marched down). Then a wonderful police officer noticed us trying to figure out what we should do and told us we could sit in the middle on the median or in the turn lane since they had closed traffic on both sides. We had front row seats and our children really enjoyed themselves! The only complaint my 7 year old daughter had was that people didn't come over to our side to hand out candy as much as they did the other side of the street. I'm sure its because they weren't used to people being on both sides (and as a mom I'm secretly pleased they didn't get too much candy! Haha!). Thanks!

Route plan was terrible. Those on north side (westbound) Malabar could barely see or hear as parade marches only om south (eastbound) side and we are relegated to the sidewalk. #unfair They ought to march in moddle of road down here or barricade should be in middle of road instated of so far away.

The parade has ALWAYS gone down that side of the road. Because most of malabar has a median down it they can’t march down the middle. This is the first year that side of the street was even closed. Usually they redirect both routes of traffic down that side of the street.

It has always been that way. They can't always make everyone happy. This year I thought it was a lot better..due to them opening up the median. I wasn't so crowded, with everyone on one side...

The median was not available closer to San Felippo. The whole point of the parade is for the community so of the median was open at one side, it should have been at the other too
