THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE CANCELED....PARADES-R-US TO THE RESCUE!

THIS SATURDAY, PARADE GOING DIEHARDS WILL HAVE THEIR THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE AFTER ALL , AS PARADES-R-US DONATES A PARADE TO THE CITY,  COMPLETE WITH FLOATS, MARCHING BANDS, AND SANTA CLAUS


BRIDGEPORT

Saturday, a little know company based in Bridgeport, Parades-R-Us will be hosting and presenting a parade to replace today's canceled parade.  "Better late, than never!",  PRU spokesman Kenny Duet told CHANNEL 1 NEWS.
This is part of the crowd that showed up this morning to  protest.   


The annual Thanksgiving Day parade, put on by the city was canceled this year due to a lack of parade floats, causing mass anger in the city. Mayor Ben Dover even decided to cut short his recent campaign win  vacation to come home and address the situation. 
Hundreds of parade goers lined the main parade route this morning, many dressed as Pilgrims, shouting obscenities and demanding that a parade be held.  City officials met at city hall just after 9 A.M. to discuss a plan to defuse the escalating turmoil in the streets.  It was quickly decided to parade the city vehicles down the parade route, officials went to the city maintenance shed where each of them manned a dump-truck, road grader, or backhoe and began parading with the protection of the police force. This tactic worked for about ten minutes before parade goers began tossing cans and bottles at the city trucks and maintenance vehicles and demanding to talk to the Mayor. 
City officials tried to appease the crowd 

It was then that Parades-R-Us spokesman Kenny Duet stepped in and announced over loud speakers that his company would donate a parade, which would take place this Saturday. He was given a huge round of applause from the crowd and they quickly began to disperse.  Order was restored just as smiling Mayor Dover's limo pulled up. After hearing of PRUs gift, he said, "It's times like these, that I'm proud to be the Mayor of this fine city!" and then he added, "Happy Thanksgiving to all!"
