Proof that Council not the Mayor, the DIB or Mini Mayor Peacock Control Parades

In the Pensacola Code of Ordinances is the following:

Sec. 8-1-17. - Throwing certain objects at parades prohibited.
It shall be unlawful for any person, while participating in a parade or while on a parade route or in a parade staging area or in a parade disbanding area to throw, toss, distribute, possess, or have in his custody or control any fireworks not expressly permitted by Florida law; any life-threatening objects; any noxious substance or any liquid intended to be poured, tossed, handed out or otherwise distributed; or any throw containing sharp points, including but not limited to plastic spears or plastic, paper or silk flowers with wire stems, intended to be tossed; or to throw, toss or otherwise distribute, any other object having a weight in excess of two (2) ounces; or to throw, toss or otherwise distribute any object in such a manner as to encourage spectators to enter the street or to closely approach vehicles, floats, horses or other conveyances.
(Ord. No. 19-90, § 1, 3-22-90)

Parades clearly come under Council authority.
Sorry Ashton!  Sorry John!

Party on!
