program, or display that is recreational, entertaining, or celebratory 
in nature; e.g., sports events, pageants, celebrations, historical 
reenactments, regattas, entertainments, exhibitions, parades, fairs, 
festivals and similar events. The term ``demonstration'' includes 
demonstrations, picketing, speechmaking, marching, holding vigils or 
religious services and all other like forms of conduct that involve the 
communication or expression of views or grievances.
