Christmas parade organizers mull ways to curb public disapproval

Nevertheless, all Main Street Crestview members on Wednesday wanted to avoid potentially violating anyone’s First Amendment rights.

"I think that we can reasonably … determine the placement of those units at the end of the parade," Conner said.

However, Hollarn expressed caution.

 "This situation had to be handled carefully; that's why we need to work with the city council," she said.

Hollarn said she was horrified when she had heard about the shouting incident.

"This is part of Crestview becoming bigger," she said. "This is probably only the beginning of certain things like this happening."

Still, each organization should receive the same courtesy, she said, adding, "Not one moment of hostility can be shown towards any group.”
