Mayor Emanuel proposes price increases to Taste of Chicago

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Mayor Emanuel wants the city to get a bigger taste of revenue from the Taste of Chicago.

The mayor proposed Wednesday boosting the cost of a strip of food tickets by fifty cents.

That would bring the cost of a 12 ticket strip to $8.50.

Concerts would also become more expensive.

Premium seating at the Petrillo band shell would double, making them $50.

Fans would have to buy a ticket for the best lawn seats as well.

No word yet on how much that would cost.

The mayor's office said most of the Petrillo lawn will still be free.
