s of candy & beads thrown to the spectators- well IF ya get the "sweet spot"!!! We carefully picked our spot this year only to find out the route had been reversed and we were on the END of the route! Tha means little if any candy is thrown.
Of course we could go out and buy all the candy we want but it's kinda like fishing- ya gotta get the spot and fill your bag! WHy???
I don't know- but it sure is fun!!!!!
