I'll be over there, i enjoy the Stroll and the huge crowd - promise i will not throw trashRead More irresponsibly.. i hate that too/ hopefully there are enough cans overflowing trash at festivals is a bummer but Stroll usually is pretty good about it

There's hardly any loose trash--it gets breezy and napkins fly out of little kids' hands and such.Read More That's about it. I've lived less than two blocks away for 17 years and have never had anyone block my driveway or misbehave around my house. I wouldn't even know there was an event but for the many folks walking toward Solano in the morning and back in the afternoon. Sometimes I can hear a band on the breeze or smell some barbeque. I love it!

@D.Mehrten Well, I live less than 50 feet from Solano Ave. and the experience is quite different.Read More Year around I deal with trash (receipts from CVS, Toy-go-round, China Village fortune cookies, napkins, cigarettes, and cigarette wrappers). In the past, the Stroll trash has been awful. I'm happy to say that this year it was MUCH cleaner. The only eyesore was on Solano itself around Gordo's and Domino's.
