Lollapalooza Evacuated – Photos

5 08 2012

Chicago has, like the rest of the country, been in a drought all summer. Some heavy rain decided to show up once about a hundred thousand people were all packed into Chicago’s Grant Park for the mega-music festival, Lollapalooza. Officials decided to evacuate the whole deal until the storm passed. This turned out to be a really good idea. It was a pounder of a storm with lightning striking all around the area. The evacuees seemed to take the whole thing in stride, with some huddling under any available shelter, and others splashing in puddles like kids. The weather made for some great photographic opportunities too. Here are a few of the shots I took.
