6/6/11 Castilleja Event, Professorville

Original post made by headache, Professorville, on Jun 6, 2011

Is anyone else regretting not soundproofing their house after receiving the warning letter from Castilleja about today's event? The bass is just way too strong, and the DJ is really loud. I'm used to noise from Stanford events like graduation or the powwow, but this is more obnoxious because Castilleja's never had an event this loud before. I don't think Joan Lonergan would have permitted such noise pollution, even for graduation.

I agree with the poster above - the kids have worked hard all year and deserve a little fun. These kind of noisy celebrations are common at many schools. I am sure it's all over and done by now.

Heard it all the way over here as well. No big deal.

Not much a disturbance for me. Noise pretty much ended by 8. I could see an issue if this was well into the night, but a neighborhood concert ending before sunset shouldn't ruin your evening.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
