(S.D.)-'Silly' Parade Law Being Changed In Rapid City

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 07/11/2013 08:01 AM
     RAPID CITY, S.D. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - Children who attend parades in Rapid City might soon be able to stuff their pockets with candy - legally.
     A city committee voted Wednesday to change an ordinance that has made it illegal for parade participants to shower the streets with candy. T
he committee made the move even though the ordinance apparently was never enforced.
     The origins of the ordinance and even the possible punishment for violating it aren't clear. Councilman Chad Lewis says it might have had a legitimate purpose at one time, but now it seems "silly."
     The City Council is expected to approve the revised ordinance at its Monday meeting.
     Lewis quipped, "Hopefully, this will remove an entire generation from going down the path of a life of crime."
