Here's an Idea!
- Chicago Park District officials said Tuesday they are asking Riot Fest organizers to look at moving the lively three-day festival to another park, such as Douglas Park on the Near West Side.
Last month, Ald. Roberto Maldonado (26th) pushed for the eviction of the festival from Humboldt Park after alleging $150,000 in promised park repairs tied to last year’s festival hadn’t been completed.
“The Chicago Park District has urged Riot Fest organizers to consider alternate locations to Humboldt Park. Douglas Park is among them,” said Jessica Maxey-Faulkner, a spokeswoman for the park district.
They must really want to kill this festival if they're sending it to the west side.
