Thread Name: Tall Ships Parade/Festival, pro/con???
Subject: RE: Tall Ships Parade/Festival, pro/con???
Fond memories of parking on the Verazzano Bridge with a carload of kids so that they could watch the Parade of Ships pass. One lonely cop on a motor cycle passed by (I was not alone) and announced "You are ALL under arrest. Return to your vehicles and I will escort you off." The crowd laughed and applauded.
The kids thought it great that Aunt Mary had gotten them arrested - much better entertainment than the ships.
Sorry for the drift, Barry.
