From what I read the Cotton Exchange parking lot was blocked off and the entire complex suffered sales losses.
There are plenty of ruffled feathers down town over this. I don't think WWAY cares really - they got all the press but didn't suffer financially.
Again at it's core it's poor parade organization and the first time in this particular location. Like the CC hotel I'll give them 4 attempts to get it right :-)
