GoogaMooga 2013 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
This may not come as a giant surprise after a rainy, not-so-sucessful 2013 event (and big lines in 2012) and myriad complaints from nearby residents, but music and food fest, Great GoogaMooga, will not return to Brooklyn's Prospect Park in 2014. Reports A Walk in the Park (via Gothamist):
The Great Googa Mooga event will not be returning to Prospect Park after a disastrous two-year run according to a Parks Department official...AWITP also reports Smith saying GoogaMooga organizers are looking for a new location.
...The news was revealed this afternoon, ironically by Michael Bloomberg family friend Besty Smith, head of revenue and marketing for the Parks Department at a City Council oversight hearing entitled, The Private Use of Public Parkland: Do Large Scale Events Benefit Parks.
