Have a Fun 4th of July! (Unless You’re At This Park in Lakewood, Ohio)

Jul 3, 2013 By Abraham

Actually, I wish this sort of over-regulation were restricted to one park in Ohio. Unfortunately, I imagine most of us wouldn’t be overly surprised to see this sign in our own town.

Have a Fun 4th

So, here’s to freedom…to break the rules! Spike your lemonade, tell the cops they can’t search your backpack, and maybe even — dare I suggest it?! — bounce a basketball…

    I live about 30 minutes away from here. This must be why I NEVER go there.
    I understand SOME of the rules. It does get super crowded on the 4th..but WOW!

      I see they missed ‘No Smiling’, ‘Tepid, Non-Effervescent Beverages in Sippy Cups Only’ and ‘Holiday Enjoyment Will Be Subject To Fines and/or Severe Beatings’.

    No shit. This is about 10 miles from where I live in Cleveland. Not surprised though. That’s the city for ya.

    Funny thing is you can probably bring your AR-15 without issue. Go USA, enjoy your so called freedom…

      *BUZZER* Sorry friend, but you appear to have injected politics into a subject having nothing to do with it, which is a Class 3 Internet Offense. 10 points from Gryffindor.

  4. JFC says:

    I love how all the Nanny State types over on FB don’t seem to get why these rules are a problem. People shouldn’t expect to have “FUN” in a civilized society. We’ve outgrown such primitive concepts. If you can’t be content just sitting quietly and staring at one another in a park, you should move to Russia or something.
