More About This Law

Law Summary

No one may throw a bottle of Coke at a parade float.

Full Text of the Law

Sec. 34-29. Throwbacks. It shall be unlawful for a person to throw any object at a float or at any participant in a carnival parade. (M.C.S., Ord. No. 19,314, § 1, 7-15-99)

About This Law

Every item, Coke included, may not be thrown at parade participants. The reasoning behind this law is quite simple. While parade crowds are anticipating items to be thrown at them, parade participants are busy entertaining the crowd and therefore are vulnerable to injury if anything is thrown at them.
