^ Agreed, so far a complete waste of millions of dollars. Who makes these choices about things like the planters and trash bins? Should it not have been decided by the winning team's designers?
This happens every single year. I don't know why they can't just close the street.Also, I think Queen street should have been completely closed to traffic during the event, because the sidewalks were no match for the thousands of people that came out tonight. A lot of them were spilling onto the street because there was no room to walk, while the small handful of cars that were dumb enough to be there couldn't move an inch for over half an hour. In the end, neither the drivers or pedestrians benefited from this.
