REC, Brookfest officially nixed [BF]

First it was cancelled.

Then it was a maybe.

But now it's officially not happening in 2006. See Suburban Life (Megan Brody):
Despite a promoter's efforts to reinstate Brookfest, the summer carnival and music festival will not occur in Brookfield this summer. That was the consensus of Brookfield trustees at a Jan. 23 meeting.

The Village Board agreed in October to discontinue Brookfest because the carnival portion of the event seemed to attract unruly patrons, especially after its entrance fee was eliminated. Officials and police agreed the festival was getting rowdier in recent years and it was taking a toll on village resources.

  • Brookfest has been a summer ritual for my family for years. How can they just decide to stop it? We are extremely disappointed by this decision. Charge a fee to keep the riff-raff out, but don't let them ruin it for everyone!
