As opposed to family unfriendly celebrations?

I suppose the family friendly thing is why we do not acknowledge Pioneer Day in Park City.

What a bunch of paranoid whiners. Family friendly denotes the fact that the celebrations include 'stuff' that kids may enjoy......more than simply face painting. Activities focused on kids.

Geez!

Good thing I'm not a Vegas Odds maker; I'd struggle w/ this one.
