I drove by the Peggy Prowe Pedestrian Bridge on Hwy 3 this morning and noticed that there was a banner hanging from it. I couldn’t read it from the highway but upon closer inspection, saw that it was promoting advanced DJJD ticket sales. For what? It doesn’t say, but I assume for the rodeo, to be held in the adjacent arena in Babcock Park.
I’m fine with the DJJD banner in Ames Park (right photo) since it’s just informative and that corner of the park has been traditionally used to promote non-profit community events. And I’m fine with Michelob Golden Light Draft and others (in this case, Econofoods and Community Resource Bank) sponsoring DJJD on their banners. But I don’t think City property, especially parks, should be used for commercial advertising of any kind, let alone beer.
Would someone let Peggy know so she can raise some hell about this?
