2007 Davenport St. Patrick's Day Parade

Despite the colder temperatures than last year, I would say there was an even bigger crowd.
Here's the crowd on 3rd between Ripley and Harrison right as the parade is ending.
Here are the cops spending a lot of effort to cram all those people onto the sidewalks in order to open up all of 3rd street. I was thinking they left part of the street closed, but now I remember they did this last year also. Why not close off a couple of lanes of 3rd street in that block, or even close that block entirely? It seems easier and safer than trying to smash 4 lanes worth of people onto 2 sidewalks. We close downtown streets for lesser events than this.

I was at the foot of the bridge. Davenport is filled with very funky people. Poor, trashy and they don't watch their children, When did we turn into this town?

Get over yourself "foot of the bridge"! The poor have as much right to watch the parade as you do! I know rich people who don't watch their kids either! What a jerk!

Tell that to the 2 year old who ran into the street because the trashy mother was too busy smoking a cig.
