The combination of torrential rain and 90,000 fans in open fields didnít end well for Grant Park over the weekend, ruining much of the parkís grass and landscaping.

According to a Chicago Sun-Times report, it could cost several hundred thousand dollars to repair the park after last weekendís Lollapalooza.

However, the Chicago Park District isnít on the hook to repair the park. As part of its deal to rent out Grant Park, the festivalís promoters ó Austin-based C3 Presents LLC ó are required to pay for any and all repairs in Lollapaloozaís wake.

The repairs to the cityís so-called front yard could take several weeks, according to the Sun-Times story.

Our park is turned over to a private business and we're charged admission to enter it. Then they ruin the place in the bargain. It's amazing people aren't outraged by this nonsense.
