Immediately following Summer Camp 2006, there was news that this festival was going to disappear following petitions to get this festival to move elsewhere. No more Chillicothe, they say. Too many friggin’ drug problems in too short of period of time…

Soon after that, we were pleased to see that they got their s*** together and did what’s best for the locals — they decided to keep the festival at Three Sisters Park for years to come.

I’ve attended this festival personally two years in a row and I’ve had tremendous fun on both occasions. I’d suggest planning your Memorial Day weekend around this if you have the wherewithal. We’ll try to have updates right here on Live Music Blog, so check back for that and let us know if you’ll be going.
