Because of all the Shooting at the "Labor Day" Parade in Brooklyn this year. I went to an alternate event. The "People's Doll, and Teddy Bear's Parade!" Other than a few fist fights at the Honey Concession Stand, and well okay a drunken brawl among the Barbies it was a swell Parade.
Btw I must say the "Honey Pine Cones" were especially good this year! No wonder them Teddies was fighting over them.
