Penn Valley Park - Post Rockfest

On Tuesday I showed you a photo looking south from the top of Liberty Memorial.  The green park was that of Penn Valley Park.  To the right just past the drives up to the Memorial, you may have seen some white tents (they looked rather small).  This is the site of Rockfest every year.  This year was the 20th year and 55,000 people attended.  Someone on TKC said I should have taken a photo after Rockfest.  Granted by Wednesday morning the site had been cleaned.  But the green grass is now a field of dirt.  The promoters of Rockfest restore the lawns every year.

We have the same problem with music festivals here. And the police usually get lucky re. drugs too.

My first thought upon seeing your picture was, "What happened to the grass?" A 110,000 feet will do that to a lawn, especially if they are all dancing to the music. Interesting.

Wow - what a change! Glad they restore it!

it's amazing how quickly they can clean that up after a show!

Must be some job to restore it, but I'm glad they did!
