The Chicago Park District is taking over the festival after Mayor Daley's attempts to outsource the festival's production resulted in a solitary bidder who wanted to turn the thing into Summerfest to the South, complete with a $20 admission and separate fees for big name concerts. Daley nixed the proposal after it received considerable backlash. The Park District's version will scale back
Some of the new vendors include Chinatown favorite Lao Sze Chuan, Smoke Daddy, Alhambra Palace and Starfruit Café.
