Next year, there should be people dressed as m&ms sitting, or dancing on a Float, waving at the Spectators. They shouldn't try the Balloon, again. Maybe a few of the people in m&m costumes can hand out foil m&m Balloons to the Children, as well. Parades that big should be safe as well as fun.

It was.... in 1997.

Which is exactly what the article says.

They shouldn't let people stand beneath the lamp posts. I was watching when it happened, though it wasn't caught on camera.
