Three years in and $2.8m later, nonprofit formed to organize Balboa Park centennial disbands and hands job back to San Diego.

"Amid a series of financial and management problems, a nonprofit organization formed to organize a yearlong celebration of Balboa Park, the city's 'crown jewel,' is calling it quits. Balboa Park Celebration Inc. is disbanding and turning over its financial records and responsibilities to City Hall, officials said." -- Tony Perry, the Los Angeles Times
