      If you do not have a spot where do you see the parade and what about our tourists. Not a happy picture at all. Guess we seniors have to stay at home and watch it on TV.

      • lovely n fresh says:

        I feel u, i saw a lady trying to secure a spot, and. saw a hamilton corporation worker, tell her that she need to move because she want the spot for her and her family. Now know, there were no marking on the side walk. Were i saw this lady setting up on sunday to try and sit. This lady worker riped up another person name, and told the other you have to move. The lady told the hamilton corporation worker, she will not be disrespectful by doing that to another by removing some else tape and sit at the marked spot with tape. She will stay were she is. That hamilton corporation worker cussed that other woman out called her names etc. The lady sat there and took the verbal beating, till she finally told the corporation im not moving, there was no marking here your name is up further why u being so disrespectful, the lady was respectful as she could be. Hamilton corporation you need to invent a soloution for thE next year. But your worker need to be repremended. I live in the city and pay city taxes, just to think i paying that rude hcw wages. Your staff was out of order rude disrespectful and out right fowl with her choice of words she cuss that girl royal.

    • One Up One Down says:

      Some people should LIVE and let live

  5. Triangle Drifter says:

    Lets have some ‘after’ pictures of the sites srayed, roped & taped off claiming use of public property.

    It would be interesting to see who cleans up after themselves & who the slobs are. They brought all of their stuff to the parade. They should certainly be able to take their own trash away with them.

    • el says:

      @Triangledrifter-it would be interesting to see you drift away….Do ya thang Bermoodians!Its Your day!!!

      • Triangle Drifter says:

        I guess you just showed the catagory that you fit into. One of the ones who feels entitled to have somebody pick up after you.

        • Watcher55 says:

          Your right, we will se trash until tomorrow and spray paint and duct tape on the roads for months

    • lovely n fresh says:

  10. bda says:

    I agree it is DISGUSTING the way Bermudians leave events! Can’t say how disappointed I am after parades.

    • Hurricane says:

      I don’t support trash being left behind. I was going for years and didn’t leave mine, but It’s just some trash after a parade and gets cleaned up, shy*. You’ll get over it and end up being ok……..SMH
