Return of the Festivarians

Festival-goers from around the country return for year two of Wakarusa...but will Lawrencians show their love, too?

You can thank Jerry Garcia for bringing Wilco to Lawrence, Kansas. You can also thank Bonnaroo, String Cheese Incident, hippies, drugs, the internet and the suburbs. Without all of these components, the festivarians wouldn't be steering their VW buses towards Lawrence this week. And without the festivarians, The Wakarusa Festival would be selling about as many tickets as this weekend's less-than-marquee showdown between the Kansas City Royals and the Houston Astros.
