Crowds cause at least one temporary parking lot closure at Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on October 10, 2016

Did you check out Utica this past weekend? If you did, how were the crowds in both downtown and at Starved Rock State Park?

The main parking lot was closed at least once Sunday afternoon at Starved Rock for a few hours because of the crowds. Amanda Carter with the La Salle County Historical Society says the crowds for Burgoo looked big but they won’t know a good estimate of the crowds until they talk with folks who handled traffic control.

Burgoo organizers had prepared for upwards of 50,000 to visit the festival this year.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
