Terribly unpleasant event for local residents. Large part of the beautiful park cordoned off for over a week - no access to band stand or running track, excessive noise, drug dealers on every corner, people urinating everywhere. Last year it took months to put the park back to normal.
Greedy organisers interested only in making profit - completely disregarding local community.
There are so many events, festivals, concerts, sport events every year in Victoria Park and none of them creates such damages and increase in criminal activities as this one.
