Meh. Its a major festival on a street.

Some of the vendors try to wash down before they head home.

Sure, everything will be fine by the end of the week.

Yeah, I know it could happen anywhere, but I've never seen it like this anywhere, even after the SAME festival on the SAME street in past years. Hopefully clean-up efforts are taking place as we speak.

The street was so dirty that I should probably get my car washed asap.

Considering the ENORMOUS crowd that attended this festival and the fact that it lasted until 9pm, I can understand why the street is still a mess. It was a virtual sea of people from Courtland to Boulevard. It'll probably take a couple days to get things back to normal.

I guess you never seen the streets after a Music Midtown when it didn't rain. Standing pools of beer, vomit, and urine (as well as other various pieces of trash) weren't uncommon. Even the bums at the Pine Street shelter made a point of going elsewhere during those days. That should tell you something.

From what plessthanpointohfive said, folks were peeing and puking all over the place at the Candler Park festival, too. Why not just let people be people? You can't have the urban lifestyle if people can't party at a festival.

Let the city clean it up.

there is not a dime for anything like this. will each person think to bring gloves and do what he/she should do---dream on

a group of Volunteers will then have to organize and clean the place up

I disagree. There are many cities in this country where the above is far more unlikely than in this city.

When enough people accept this behavior, it becomes acceptable behavior.

Give me a break...I'm pretty sure people have bodily functions equally across the country.

A Music Midtown when it didn't rain? I don't think anyone has ever seen that!
