Steampunk Carousel Outing Cut Short By Security Guards

Maybe someone saw too much Clockwork Orange and thought you and your droogies were going to smash up the place. It's likely that someone with little skill or will at checking backgrounds panicked and then tried to avoid looking even more stupid by acting even more stupid.

Even with a site's invitation to be at an event, you can run into problems with people who don't do their homework or read their memos. I'm a member of a group of non-commercial mascot entertainers who no longer visit a city-sponsored kids' fair we'd been invited to yearly, because we were constantly harassed by security one year. It seemed someone got it into their heads that we were a threat to the kids, and assurances from the event organizers didn't matter.
