I heard back from the Parks Department
As for Peacock Park, they are trying to make changes there. There was an ordinance that was to have kept events out of the park and if they were permitted, they would not be allowed to gate the park in and charge. But it looks like that is not happening as of yet. Thanks to the BID and others, the events can take place. This would have effected the beer festivals, seafood festival, pumpkin festival and other events.
Kevin says, " As for Peacock Park, we are taking input from the BID Marketing Committee to determine any modifications that would be recommended to the BID Executive Committee and ultimately to the City Commission to amend the Coconut Grove Special Event District Ordinance, if necessary."
Speaking of Pumpkins, the Pumpkin Patch has not been heard from this year. It may not happen. I know I've complained about having to pay to go in and buy a pumpkin, but still, it was a great event for the fall.
