Art Display
One of the political art display panels at the festival.

Those who took the chance of coming out to the festivities were treated to a surprise appearance on John Sebastian. Fittingly he did, "Did you ever have to make Up Your Mind?".

Then he introduced Donovan, Yes. Really. He did Colours and Catch the Wind (I was back in 1968 for a minute or two).
