TCRefining commented on Mardi Gras deal a vast improvement

Allowing one person to fence off down town Galveston,for profit, is ridiculous, and probably illegal. The way this event is promoted down town does nothing but cause problems and take away from local business. Most business down town do better labor day weekend than Mardi gras. NO GATES
