Wait, Kids Aren't Allowed To Sit On Shoulders Anymore?!

Posted by on Sat, Sep 1, 2012 at 10:12 PM

Not fair! This little lady was sitting on an adult's shoulders, trying to see her Dad play drums earlier today. Bumbershoot security informed the adult that "kids weren't allowed to sit on shoulders." Wait, does it really present a hazard? An unfair sight-line for others? Is this really a new rule, Bumbershoot?

My dad plays drums!

It's been a few years since I went. I went today and I was apalled at the over zealous rules for everything, having to walk in endless circles to find exits, entrances... Never going again.

We're relatively new to the area and this our third-in-a-row Bumbershoot. Compared to the past two years, we found it refreshing that they seemed to have toned down on the regs, at least far as bags go. Unlike at previous outings, my bag was never searched and I never had to pour out my water or leave my water bottle at the entrance to a beer garden. Also saw many kids on shoulders without harassment.

I can confirm this. A headset-wearing friendly security duo shut me and my little girl down as we were leaving the Sera Cahoone show. They said it was because last year a person knocked a parent and kid over. We complied, then I put her back up after we walked away.

Kids ride free!

I had really great interactions with a variety of security personell this year (platinum status? Don't mind if I do!) Good job, Bumbers!
