Chicago's biggest music festival of the year is over. Monday morning, crews cleaned up the mess from Lollapalooza. Besides breaking down stages, vendors were also busy taking down their tents and booths.

The event turned out to be a huge success with minimal problems. Police report only a handful of arrests were made.

An estimated 225,000 people packed Grant Park over three days to watch 120 bands played on 8 stages.

The event sold out on Friday and Saturday for the first time.

Lollapoalloza is scheduled to stay in Grant Park through 2011.
