Its great to have a celebration and music but can any one listen to one music from the other?

i have noticed its very unorganised with music being blasted left and right. surely how can you appreciate any of the music and does any one know the roots of this. Can it be placed in a park like other civilised gatherings in the year 2014. im very suprised it still is such a mess with smoke of nasty smelling food and people walking around like they have lost a dog.


Aaah.... Carnival?
