Free tickets to the Blackhawks rally at Soldier Field were gobbled up in short order Wednesday afternoon, leaving lots of disappointed fans out in the cold.
Hundreds of thousands of Blackhawks fans have crowded city streets downtown and packed into Grant Park for the team’s Stanley Cup victory parade and rally.
Call them Lollapa-losers; the free-loaders who crashed the entrance gates at Lollapalooza last year without paying. No encores allowed this year.
The promoters behind Lollapalooza are outlining plans to protect Grant Park—where the outdoor music festival will be held next week.
Grant Park was left a muddy mess after Lollapalooza this summer, but a month later, repairs are well underway.
Officials at the Chicago Park District say it will take several weeks and tens of thousands of dollars to repair the damage done to Grant Park during Lollapalooza.
