The three-day event wrapped up last night, highlighted by a free concert from former American Idol winner Phillip Phillips. An estimated 200,000 people visited Grant Park's Draft Town. Now the cleanup begins.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the event was a huge success. There's even rumors that the draft could return to the Second City as soon as next year.

    Simply could NOT have chosen a better city and the weather was perfect. While I’ve often considered relocating to other cities for better career-building opportunities, family-friendly events such as “DraftTown” are the type of events that keeps me tethered to the Windy City. Kudos to Mayor Emanuel, event planning personnel and the City of Chicago at large!
