absolutely wonderful! i really want to thank the people of the carribbean for sharing their music and thier heritage with us. good family fun. however I think they deserve a huge apology from the city of atlanta's police department. they did not block off a parade route for the parade, in fact they blocked the parade on numerous occasions to allow traffic to proceed as usual. even more offensive-they made them stop the music and parade for several blocks in silence. this was not only an insult to the paraders but also to the people who attended. is this prejudice against the people, the music, the spectators? have other parades in atlanta been insulted in like manor? let's see what happens at the parade.....
