Candy will be harder to come by at Peach Days Parade

Changes are in store for the Peach Days Parade in Brigham City. Brigham City Area Chamber of Commerce Director Monica Holdaway told the Brigham City Council last week that passing out candy during parades is a growing safety issue. According to an article in the Box Elder News Journal, Holdaway says youngsters run out onto Main Street during the parade to get the candy, not wanting to wait for parade participants to pass out the candy along the sides of the street. She says that has resulted in accidents involving pedestrians. Holdaway says this year motorized entries will be at the beginning of the parade and they will not be able to give handouts to the crowd. Anyone wanting to pass out candy will be placed at the end of the parade and all entries will have to be human powered, i.e. walking, bicycling, pulling a wagon or pushing a shopping cart.
