There was an informal gathering at the Perry Street Cafe Monday evening of all the people who helped make this year's fair and parade a success. The Cafe generously fed everyone and ideas flew left and right around the table. Most importantly: the fair and parade made a profit, which will be donated to two charities in the neighborhood - the final amounts will be announced on Tuesday, at the South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association meeting.
Among the many ideas was to have the parade go around twice (it's short...) - starting the music earlier, right after the parade - getting a banner to hang across the street - the location of the stage - the need for MORE volunteers to help move tables and chairs - and complete closure of the street for the afternoon.
So here's your chance: what would you like to see next year at the South Perry Fair and Parade?
