On August 15-17, 1969, the village of Bethel, NY (with a normal population of 5000) became the third largest city in the state. In a time of war, demonstrations, riots, racial and social unrest, over 400,000 young people from across the nation would converge on Max Yasgur's 600 acre dairy farm for three days of peace, love and music. Many parked as far as 10 miles away. Some were called flower children, hippies, or yippies ... some just wanted to party (before being called to war) ... others were just curious. But they would show the world that people of all races, creeds, religions and social backgrounds could co-exist without violence. As the hordes began crossing the security fences, it became a free concert featuring 31 of the biggest bands and performers of the time. Through pouring rain, with inadequate food or water, medical or sanitation facilities, all would help their fellow man. It would create a moment that would change their lives as well as those of future generations. All would leave touched by the ...Woodstock Experience!
