They should have left it alone! The crowd is not going to get bigger just because it is downtown. They are hoping to attract more white people and they won't say that. I am a white person so i will say that i had no problem sitting on castle street with my son enjoying the parade every year I'm not going this year because of its location parking is a pain, the water is too cold to be on in January and the whole idea of changing tradition like that is ridiculous i hope the turn out is worse and they move it back next year!
