Shirlington Oktoberfest - Out of Control

Hello Yupette,

I live in a condo about 1/4 mile from Shirlington.

The so-called 'Shirlington Oktoberfest' which is now officially the 'Mid-Atlantic Oktoberfest' is way out of control. This event draws at least 10,000 people into what is supposed to be a planned 'smart growth' community and imposes massive traffic on a dozen residential neighborhoods within a mile radius.

I am also appalled by how many people who have parked in my neighborhood and consumed a lot of beer are walking to their vehicles and driving home.

Anyone know who's responsible for this mess?
