Getting ready for the parade
For some reason people around here stake claims on spots for the parade that is happening today for River Falls Days. Growing up i don't remember this, but i didn't grow up around here, so maybe it's a local thing. People lay out blankets mostly, with some people putting up caution tape. This is outside of the post office, but this sight stretches all the way of the parade route and people start putting them out around a week before hand. Last night had storms, so i'm wondering how many were blown away or soaked with rain. I'm not a fan of this, it's ugly and lazy. Not to mention people bringing lawn chairs and other furniture when the parade actually starts. It's one thing if you can't stand for long periods, but it's almost solid chairs once the parade starts.
