All summer is a bit of a stretch. Lets keep in mind that people live on Main St. That means the Family Fun Nights, although fun and great for the town, inconvenience the hundreds of residents on Main St and the surrounding area. For example, I have a DJ outside the front door of my apartment shouting on a microphone til 9:30 PM. I can't be in my apartment on the "fun nights" until that guy stops. Again, it's a great time for many, many people, but it does inconvenience many as well. All summer would be overkill.
