ONN – Sideshow On West Grand Avenue: City Should Make Them Legal Contests

Another gem: this video by the channel named Adecio Martins .

It features a spinning contest right in the middle of the intersection just before the on-ramp to the approach to the eastern span of the San Francisco- Bay Bridge. In fact, you can see the ramp in the background to the right in the video.

The video was uploaded just 17 hours ago.

Sideshows have become and increasing occurrence in , of late. Currently ruled illegal in , the City of should turn them into money-generating contests held in special areas, and with the earnings used to help renters-in-need stay in their apartments.

The reasons against having sideshows boil down to veiled racism. Take this entry on Facebook, and note the name-calling:

Legalizing sideshows won’t help.

Who will insure and provide security for such a venue?
Sideshows are underground entertainment and not everyone who participates is licensed and insured. Are they going to stop once there’s a legal venue? How many will be willing to pay an entrance fee to watch or participate?

People from San Jose, Sacramento, Stockton, and any number of places in and around the Bay Area come to for sideshows. Are they going to still want to come to pay to participate and follow rules?

Why in the world would anyone believe that a legal sideshow would keep the same fools from hitting streets and acting a dummy in front of our homes? The whole attraction for most participants IS the illegality.

The point here is that sideshows also feature car stunts that provide entertainment and tests of the top-performing muscle cars available. Done right, the legal sideshow could become a kind of auto-show for the rest of us: a car test-bed of new projects before they’re sold. And, sideshows would create stars and a new sport.

Stay tuned.
