The Foothill Band Review is a great and well-known event. While it creates a fair amount of traffic disruption, it is a very worthwhile tradition and Pleasantonians adjust to the traffic disruptions.
However, the number of traffic disruptions Pleasantonians have to put up with for parades and events in the downtown area are becoming a major pain. Sunday's Spirit Run is a good example with some major arteries being closed in addition to Main Street. The closure of Valley Avenue from the Fairgrounds to Paseo Santa Cruz is a specific example of a major artery being closed which will cause some significant detours.
I urge folks that are fatigued with all the street closures for events to contact members of the City Council to voice their frustrations.

My family enjoys ALL of the events that take place on Main Street (although 7:30AM is a tad early). I just wish they would bring back "Cruise Night" during the Summer Good-Guys' event. And, while I'm at it -- Bring the Sunol Train line to Bernal Avenue on weekends.
