Wakarusa Festival, 2005 (Part 1)

The 2005 Wakarusa Fest had more of everything - more beer, more stages, more bands. . . and definitely more heat. The only horrific mishap to put a damper on the festivities was the conspicuous lack of fried Twinkies, but you can't pull off an event of this magnitude without some sort of catastrophe. The Turnpike crew and host Tim vonHolten doff their knitted rainbow berets to the organizers and staff of this year's must-attend summer activity.
