As long as it is a family environment. This city has so few things for families to do these days, shutting down a single block of a relatively quiet street is worth it!

Agree with CC above. Also think they should reopen it in the winter.

I agree with CC, but the proposed "college fair" is a joke. All it will do is take money out of Lawrence. An outside company comes in, closes down a block for a day so they can run a bunch of money-making schemes for three hours, then packs up and leaves town with a bunch of money that could have been stayed in Lawrence. Sounds like a good, old-fashioned snake-oil salesman to me.

I also agree with CC. How about another set of concerts with food and booths from local restaurants and stores all around?

What about another concert like the had a couple of years ago. They had great bands and there were people of all ages there.

As long as the store owners on that block are ok with it, it would be a good thing.

sounds like a drunk homeless convention

I miss the Get Downtown Festival - that was a fantastic and well-run event. Lawrence needs more events like that downtown.

Richard Heckler 5 years, 7 months ago

I voted NO!

I think Mass street should be the carnival street.

Bring on the carnivals!
