I hope they use the fruit after the festival. Otherwise, it would be such a waste when so many are starving and could use those wonderful vitamins.

Nice figures; but it is a real shame to use such a quantity of lemon, lime, oranges and tangerines!!! I'd rather make free juice to all people there!!!

Think of how many people those fruits could nourish instead of wasting them on floats, etc. Waste is a sin.

It’s a wonderful experience to see it and then you can branch off and visit other beautiful areas. It’s a fun city
