Day 3 Woodstock Music Art Fair

Good morning, campers

It had been some 22 hours. We had taken off with Quill and landed with the Airplane.

We were hungry. Tired. Worried whether locals had towed our car away. Amazed that there were so many of Us.

Little did we know what would Sunday hold?

Max Yasgur

I don’t think we knew the name until then, but after we heard him we’d never forget it.

I’m a farmer…(interrupted by a cheer from the audience)… I don’t know how to speak to twenty people at one time, let alone a crowd like this. But I think you people have proven something to the world — not only to the Town of Bethel, or Sullivan County, or New York State; you’ve proven something to the world. This is the largest group of people ever assembled in one place. We have had no idea that there would be this size group, and because of that you’ve had quite a few inconveniences as far as water, food, and so forth. Your producers have done a mammoth job to see that you’re taken care of… they’d enjoy a vote of thanks. But above that, the important thing that you’ve proven to the world is that a half a million kids — and I call you kids because I have children that are older than you are — a half million young people can get together and have three days of fun and music and have nothing but fun and music, and I – God Bless You for it!”

Thank you Max Yasgur for giving us a place to listen to our music with our fellow travelers.
