Some girl sprayed bug repellant on herself and the spray and fumes were blowing around through the crowd at the ballpark. That would have neen enough to make anyone pass out
I drove by there on an errand around 6:30 and saw people packing the gate waiting to be let in and they were steady streaming to the park. Stood on the corner and watched from there.

Problem being is BEM parents are invading everywhere with their little DNA drainers- even bars. I can't even go out and enjoy a brew without some cracker-ass kid wailing out with an ice-pick-in-the-eardrum piercing shriek.

Sounds like you're the one who should stay home.

Rather they should leave their kids home. When I go out I mind my business, enjoy the company of my wife or friends and conduct myself as an adult. Kids are incapable of exercising manners and are NOT patrons of the establishment for which they are disrupting with rude behavior.
Even Chick-Fil-A partitions off the play area as to not interrupt other patron's mealtime.

Nonsense. There are certainly areas where small children shouldn't be. That category doesn't include daytime street festivals or Chick-Fil-A.

And even my youngest child is better behaved than some adults I witness on a daily basis. However, as an adult, I simply ignore it and move on.

You are not entitled to a child-free world. Sorry.

I don't even have kids and this is ridiculous. What are parents supposed to do? Quarantine themselves for 10-15 years while their kids grow up? Chick-Fil-A partitions to separate the kids to not interrupt mealtime? There are still tons of kids running around the dining room. Sure, it can be a little annoying but I know that's what I'm going to get spending $7-8 at Chick Fil-A.

A daytime festival is another event where I know to expect children running around. That goes with the territory. Obviously there are places where kids don't belong. I don't want to go to Ruth's Chris and have a thousand kids running around screaming. But daytime festivals are one place I know that that comes with the territory. Those who can't accept that probably shouldn't go.

Not a personal shot skinsguy but it puzzles me why people bring kids that require strollers and pets to these type events.
Um, because it's a family friendly event and my son has just as much right to attend as you do.

I suppose people in wheelchairs should stay home as well. SMH.

Apparently they have sense enough not to try and navigate the crowded streets because I don't recall seeing disabled people in wheelchairs there. Even my neighbor who has a motorized chair doesn't attend crowded events.

Yep. They were there. Navigating themselves through the streets. So now, it's parents with small kids and disabled people are not allowed to attend public events. Gotcha!
