  • Certainly looks more wholesome than the Caribbean Fest on Georgia.

  • but traffic and parking…what a pain.

  • Trash everywhere. People pissing in the streets. Thank goodness I don’t live in this neighborhood.

    • All swept and power washed away this morning. Bright and sparkley clean.
      The parade was a blast. The costumes were out of this world and the little kids could not have been more adorable.

        And weather was not as bad as last year for dancers with heavy costumes! (or for dancers with almost no costume 😀 )

      • Not exactly. They didn’t put out a single trash can during the festival so there was grime from all manner of food, drink and bodily food all over the street last night. A street cleaner truck made several passes last night but this morning there was still a lot of trash and the smell was putrid.

        • bodily food! man that’s a terrible mental image.

        • I saw several men emptying trashcans along Irving & Park Rd around 3pm, so that’s just not true.

          There was a weird smell on MtP Street this morning, but nothing worse than usual after a humid day.

          I thought they cleaned up much better than in previous years! Mt P St has become a dump lately. Anyone know if you can get trashbags & other supplies from the city if you organize a cleanup? Or does someone need to sponsor our main street?

    • Agreed. Thank goodness you don’t live in this neighborhood.

  • Drove back from Philly last night and the Eagles’ post-tailgate parking lot looked better than Mt. Pleasant Street.

  • i guess some people always find the downside of a really fun day.

    it was a really fun parade with lots of great people.

    (oh, also on the plus side … no shooting).

    3rd photo – Lionel Messi showed up. Wow!

  • I live in the neighborhood and had to drive to work that day, which was a nightmare. If the event had been better published I could have made different plans. In any case I obviously didn’t have the opportunity to enjoy the fun but when I made it home the streets were PLASTERED with trash. It looked a lot better the next day but as of sept 30th I think it still stinks a bit despite the rain we have had.
