This "Concert" is disturbing to the peace. I have lived in York 12 years. The first time this horrendous noise started makingmy dogs howl, I asked what it was and was told it was a Christmas concert. What a joke. In the years since, every time a new neighbor moves onto our block, I get a call or a text asking what that horrible racket is. And as for the "it only lasts 15 minutes once a year" comments,it is 3 days befeor Christmas and I have been listening to over 20 minutes of annoying practice now. Maybe if the idiots up at Rocky Ridge "AKA This park looks junky all year with 30 year old xmas displays and lights" want the whistle tradition alive, maybe they can move it up there and put it over the hill so we do not all have to hear it.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
