Not in the papers yet,but Bay News 9 is reporting a shooting death at the Chasco Fiesta.They are doing a good job so far of not insinuating that it was in any way related to the carnival.More along the lines of it being a drinking ,related incident along the parade route....We will see if they continue with this premise,or if this,like so many others do,try to twist it into a carny thing.

Got to give kudos to the lady in ticket box. I am getting wristbands for my wife and 3 kids.$20 each. ..$80..simple math .I give her a C-note,she does the wristbands,We head away,I hear thumping on plexiglass.She is holding up my $20 change.
Restored my faith in man(women)kind.I thanked her profusely even went back later on after the lines died down and thanked her again.
I probably would not have noticed the $20 had she not said something as it was very hectic up till that point.Didn't get her name but thanks again sweet lady....P.s. I am pretty sure it wasn't a committee person.She looked like a Carol Stream employee.
Finally.I have seen this show several times now ,but we usually leave before dark.Stayed a little later last night and I must say..what a beautiful show at night.Looks great during the day,don't get me wrong,but was really impressed with the lighting.Class show IMHO......................more to come Whac-A-Mole story,and talked to female ride jock for quite awhile .....jeff brown

Update- Max Horn allegedly shot and killed an as yet unnamed man outside a Grand Avenue bar.Was booked into the county jail about six am.
Again,just curious to see what spin the media will put on it pertaining to the carnival.Looks totally unrelated,but we know how little that matters.....jeff

What does that mean???? Did she have a Show Shirt on or something? If not what does a "Carol Stream employee" look like???? Is that something like saying that guy looks like a Carny or Gang Member?

I meant she was a Carol Stream employee vs being a committee member.Most of the committee people have a blue vest at this event.The 3 people in the ticket booth did not.I certainly didn't mean it in a derogatory way..jeff

It might be in the Joint.....I don't really see any connection to the Festival do you? Maybe Jeff can give us a lil more detail...I'm sure if it happened at or near the Carnival it would of been mentioned insted of a night club....

A Couple Blocks away is'nt a "shooting death at the Chasco Fiesta" like the news reported....Sounds like the news trying to spice it up and hurt the Fiesta.....[xx(]

When I first posted on this sunday morning,I didn't know what time it happened.I assumed it was later on.Now I see it happened at 9:40 p.m.We left around 9:00.I am glad I didn't have to explain to my kids why they were shutting it down.
Really sucks for the carnys,cause the place was jammed.Lines on most everything. Definitely the busiest day of the spot,cut short by some jag with a gun....
