Mr. McLeod, you say you’d like Silver City Days to be family oriented this year (Silver City Days set to go, Trail Times May 7). Then why is the fair set up behind a bar? On the weekend families with children have to walk past the bars, seeing drunks and such.
Trail has many low income families with children who can not afford the rides (as they are not cheap and seem to go up every year).
Imagine being a young child and seeing those rides and games and not being able to go on them because there’s no money. Painful to think about isn’t it?
You’d think maybe the mall parking lot in the back would be better place, less kids hanging around the fair, less trouble and the parents that can’t afford it, won’t see the pain in the children’s eyes knowing they can’t go on rides.
