But the point is by some pre arranged agreement the city does provide law enforcement.
The MLK parade apparently has no agreement and ONLY got the permission to change the route.

Which then leads me back to since it's private shouldn't they pay for law enforcement presence? Or at least contribute something towards it?
You see, with the arrival of the Queen streets are only blocked momentarily as her motorcade passes by. With the Azalea parade isn't that held on a weekend? This is different because some of the businesses down town are not dependent upon walk in traffic - they are then adversely impacted - as are businesses that have parking lots blocked by the parade route.
MLK is a strange holiday - some celebrate and some don't, some businesses prosper from it and others don't. The parade organizers apparently got complacent thinking they were still on Castle Street and didn't bother getting together with the businesses along the new route - shame on them.
