Changes in First Wednesday Street Parties

Thank you SO VERY MUCH Pleasanton Downtown Association for changing the Beer Garden to the Entertainment Garden and making the First Wednesday Street Parties family friendly once again. To be turned away because we had a dog, or not allowed to enter with our own chairs because it was a "fire hazard" (which was absolutely ridiculous, especially given the hundreds of chairs that are allowed at the Friday Concerts in the Park), was so frustrating. And it was definitely totally opposite from a family friendly event after children were no longer allowed and it became more like a bar scene, taken over by hundreds of people seemingly only interested in drinking. My attendance the past couple years lessened because of the above, but I am now very much looking forward to Wednesdays in downtown again!
