Great GoogaMooga Gone for Good?

Thursday, October 03, 2013

The Great GoogaMooga food and music festival will not be held in Prospect Park next year, officials say.

The city's Parks Department says the event was deemed too long, and too large for the park's Nethermead. The last Great Googa Mooga happened last May, and it generated several complaints about the trash left behind and the damage to the grass. The first GoogaMooga, in 2012, received similar complaints.

The festival's organizers wouldn't confirm whether they are seeking another location in the city. But a spokesman says the Parks Department is open to talking about - quote - "the potential of this event in another smaller iteration in our public park system."

It is indeed for the good that they are discontinuing the Mooga. How about we let the park be a park. I know strange concept right? Now if they would only reopen the boathouse which has been closed up only to be used for money generating events like weddings. The park leadership need to take a good long look at the direction where they have been taking the park. Or maybe we need new park leadership.
