I'm going to share the sentiments already reflected above - Open Streets yesterday was definitely a success. The weather although not perfect - kept perhaps the larger crowds away - but that didn't keep those who showed up from having a good time. For a first time kind of event that isn't a standard and familiar set up (ie. Festival of Friends, Buskerfest or Locke Street Festival) - it really worked. What made this event special was the fact that things could happen without the hindrance of strict organization or jury. Also what I liked was the businesses along the street that decided to open were showcased in a different light without booths of crappy merchandise obstructing the view or traffic whizzing by. Open Source is exactly what Open Streets was - kind of how the Art Crawl works....you know it's happening - go to town and get involved! Mixed Media is never open on Sundays and we were pleasantly surprised by the new faces deciding to explore our street and support our neighbours. Kudos to all who participated!
