From Dave on 27 Sep 2004:

Great idea but not really planned or promoted well enough. Seemed in a way rather pointless when on Sunday most of the stores are closed.

Sunday was a good idea, but not on the same day as the High Street festival.

The speakerbox was a good idea, but speakers were only approved, by Yarra City Council, only days before the first one stepped out leaving only a day or so to promote it. Surely a letterbox drop a few blocks on either side of Smith st would've reached many more people than the flyers that blended in so well with the others that it was difficult to discerne between the events.

The Bikers Breakfast, another good idea, but there are people on either side of Smith, residents... people who live here, people who make up the population that support the retail sector who may have participated had they known about it. It seemed more like a festival for retailers than for anyone else in the "community".
