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.

While the street closures pose some inconvenience, I wouldn't trade having these types of events in town. That is what I love about this town.
Good luck to all the bands participating this weekend!

With 39 bands marching on Main Street that will mean more people moving on Main street than the usual slow Saturday
