2012 Lolla Cleanup Costs $350K to Fix Damaged Grant Park

It rained again at this year's Lollapalooza festival and that meant Grant Park was significantly damaged.  As a reminder, in 2011, C3 (the group that is responsible for Lollapalooza) spent $1 million to fix Grant Park and came under fire for how long it took to repair the high-profile park.

Well the cost appears to be less this year (according to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune), but we still need to see how long it takes them to fix everything:
Promoters of the Lollapalooza music festival now say it will cost $350,000 to restore Grant Park after this month's event. 
Earlier this month, the promoters and the Chicago Park District said it would cost about $150,000 for landscaping work in the park, which has hosted the festival for the last eight years.
