    Went to the Electric Light parade – the cars parked along the sidewalk made viewing the parade next to impossible unless you stood in the street – Please dont let the cars park there next year. Ruined the parade for a lot of us.

      Thanks for letting me know. I think the Highway Patrol usually puts out no parking notices. I’ll forward this to the River Chamber of Commerce.

      Sheryl: Kayte from the R.R. Chamber of Commerce responded to your comment (see below)

  • Kayte G.

    Talk to the downtown merchants, they have asked that we do not block parking in front of their business’s.
