EVENT, Brookfest nein! Oktoberfest ja! [BF]

Even though Brookfield cancelled Brookfest, the village will sponsor an Oktoberfest. See Riverside/Brookfield Landmark (Jessica Glowinski).

The article ends by saying,
In addition to Oktoberfest, the Special Events Commission is planning its own one-day Art and Jazz Fest in Kiwanis Park in mid-September. The idea for that festival was hatched in the aftermath of the village's decision to discontinue its annual summer music festival, Brookfest, earlier this year.

Brookfest attracted the wrong people because the music was too popular.

Does anybody remember the quote where Bart Simpson claims that cartooning is the one art form created in America? Someone (Lisa?) responds by saying, "What about jazz?" Bart declares, "Jazz doesn't count; nobody listens to it."
