It Cost Over $400K To Fix Grant Park After Lollapalooza



It looks like ticket prices aren’t the only sticker shocks associated with Lollapalooza. The costs to repair Grant Park following the epic summer music festival totaled $453,000 this year, according to the Chicago Park District. That represents a significant increase over last year’s costs, $236,000—almost half this year’s figure. The highest restoration cost in recent years was 2011, when a torrential thunderstorm deluged the park on Day Three and resulted in $1 million in damage.

I wonder if this cost has anything to do with people burying treasures in the ground weeks before so they won’t have to sneak them in? THOSE WE’RE GOPHER HOLES!! – m
