32 Items that Are Way Better Than Tootsie Rolls at Minnesota Parades
You know it is summer in the midwest when people line their chairs up and lay blankets out to save their spot for the local parade. I was driving through Wisconsin a few weekends ago, apparently on a soon-to-be parade route and there were bunches of chairs on the edges of curbs all down main street. Just like in Rochester, chairs and blankets lined up staking claim to yards and cement slabs trusting that people will respect the "parade reserve rules" that don't exist.
Don't believe me, go drive the parade route Friday night. You'll see what I'm talking about. And in case you need it, you can find the parade route and all the Rochesterfest parade details here.

Instead of spending your dollars on those worthless pieces of candy, check out these items to throw at the parade-goers instead.
