A land dispute just around forty days before the festival moved the event and an entry way across a railroad had to be worked out before the music went on. However some local help was needed, like from Allen Logging, who cleared out the grove so the event could have a home this year.
"He said we got forty days, forty nights, and forty dollars. I said well in that case we're going to go forth with it. Allen Logging donated the machines and all the equipment to come in and we got all the trees out." said Bill Allen of when the festival officials came to him for help.
Even though some last minute changes were necessary, people came from all over including Arkansas, Texas, and Wisconsin just to name a few.
