Parade's grandstand location scrutinized

Guam - It was a first time the Liberation Day Parade headed southbound and while many enjoyed the change in direction, MCOG executive director Angel Sablan says the biggest criticism was a lag between parade entries because the grandstand was positioned at the start of the route.

"The people that stop in front of the grandstand - some of them take a few minutes some of them take five minutes some of them take ten minutes to do their performance for the VIPs," he explained.

Lessons learned, Sablan says next year the MCOG will incorporate staff to enforce a time limit at the grandstand.

Also looking ahead, Sablan says the MCOG is eyeing the Asan Beach Memorial Park as a site for future liberation festivities like the carnival. He says its only fitting as the Asan Park is the site where the Marines first landed on Guam 70 years ago.
