While Lollapalooza only saw a few short rain showers this year, the bill to clean up Grant Park is nearly double what it was in 2015.
According to the Chicago Park District, the cost to repair Grant Park is $453,000, up from $236,000 in 2015.
The park didn’t require major repair this year. Instead, portions of the lawn required re-seeding along with other minor work. Heavy rain showers caused a problem when they washed away all the seed that was planted.
As always, C3 Presents will be footing the bill for cleanup.
