A piÃ±ata ban in nearly three dozen parks in Harris County, Texas has rankled Hispanic community leaders and activists.
Six years ago, the county decided to ban a number of party favors from local parks, among them piÃ±atas.
Officials said it was a litter issue but when new signs appeared recently, saying "no piÃ±atas allowed," Hispanic community leaders complained of discrimination.
Now the county is reviewing the policy.
