Fourth for family

To the Editor:
The fireworks were quite impressive this year for a small county.
Although, the crowd couldn’t enjoy the bands due to vendors parked right in front of the stage. Everyone sitting in the grass could only catch a glimpse of their knees through the vendor windows.
We also had to endure cigarette smoke coming from every direction. Even with children playing all around them, they continued to puff away.
This isn’t the first outdoor event we had to deal with second hand smoke. If we can’t ban smoking at outdoor events, could we at least make a designated smoking section?
By the way, we also didn’t appreciate one band singing over and over about rolling and smoking joints.
This is a family event. Let’s remember that please!
