Sunset Junction: Organizers Raise Cash, But Will the Fest Go On?
UPDATE: 11:45 a.m. The Board of Public Works has denied the Sunset Junction its permit for 2011.The Los Angeles Board of Public Works delivered quite a blow to the organizers of the Sunset Junction music festival and street fair when they denied them their permit, just days ahead of the weekend event. One problem: The event has a $250,000 tab with the (broke) City of L.A. from last year's event.
The Board told the Sunset Junction-ers that they would reconsider, if they could come up with about $141,000 to cover this year's costs. But the organizers--via an attorney--balked, saying they were about two-thirds shy of that amount in the event coffers.
However, the organizers launched a fundraising campaign, and by yesterday evening, they said they had secured commitments for donations that would cover the fees demanded by the Board of Public Works.
So will the show go on? (Hanson fans are dying to know--and we have an inbox full of anxious email inquiries to attest as much.)
The Board of Public Works meets again this morning and are expected to take up the permit issue again.
