See this was my point in an earlier post about the 104.5 concerts at the Piazza. Anytime you have an event on a large scale there will be problems, it is not just concentrated to Tower. Those in the neighborhood who don't like the Piazza will complain about it, despite the fact that the events they hold in high regard come with many of the same issues. That being said, I had a great time at the festival and despite many intoxicated people, the disticnt smell of marijuana in the air, lack of parking (literally someone parked on the sidewalk in front of my house), music heard blocks away, witnessing a kid urinating on North Hancock street behind North Bowl and the fact that I had to reach down my dogs throat 24 hours after the event to get a disgarded chicken bone left over on 2nd street while we were out for a walk, I thought it was a success. Again, people will see what they want to see...
Our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions
