First, It was spread out to far apart from one entrant to the next. Second, nobody clapped for the celebrities, because, most were unknown. It is sad that our Famous Wilmingtonian got more applause from the crowds. Third, there were hardly any bands. Fourth, I guess anyone can get in the parade, because of all the Hair Salon vehicles at the end of the parade and some of the entrants just walking down the street doing nothing or did they sneak in? Lastly, the coverage from WWAY was terrible. The anchors need to study the material before the parade. Cape Fear Middle School was the only middle school in the parade and they were from ROCKY POINT not Rocky Mount. Kevin should know this! There were numerous other mistakes, and the worst part, they are local entrants and local news media should know most of these and where they are from. I have lived here all my life and one of the few locals left and I felt as though this parade was just thrown together. Oh well, there is always next year!
