Whilst i being a festival goer hope there will be no harassment on the part of the local authorities(as there usually is), i am extraordinarily grateful that they have committed this weekend to protecting the people who come from all over to this festival and to ensure everyone has a safe time.

I was very impressed with the mature response of the local authorities last year, and the festival was OUTSTANDING. I'll be there this year for sure!

sobriety check-points are unconstitutional, stopping everyone without cause.

Does the person profitting from all the hippies pay for the increased law enforcment and emergency services? If not, can someone please post who needs contacted to get this accomplished.
One person profits, while the rest of us pay the tab, sounds like something else

You live in IL and you want to worry about Arkansas. We? Do you have a mouse in your pocket? I guess the Jackson's should pay for their secuity circus. How about Walmart and the shareholders meeting? No charge for all of that security. How about the security and traffic control for all the University of Arkansas games? No charge. Seems this brings people to the area that are spending money on food, lodging to some degree gas and many other things. This is not hiipies at all dude. There are a lot of baptist too. Since you are from IL, pay attention to your own problems like your ex-govenor or senators that pay for seats. Or, thanks for Obama. You folks from IL are so much better than us hillbillies in AR.

you must not know much about how this site uses server location to add city, not user location.
so YES - WE -

if you are a campus cop - take your plastic badge and go chase down a student for not paying parking tickets, or what ever it may be that you do.

Wal-Marts contribution to the area is massive - Jobs - etc
V. Pattons contribution as a result of WAKA is into his personal account.

If youd like to meet me somewhere ill be more than happy to teach you about how us arkansas boys resolve issues.

Hey Chris I'm going to use your precise measurement here and say that this event and its impact on the small town of Ozark is "massive". There....all taken of.

I agree - massive - in a negative manner
- yet your right it remains a massive impact. You are a brian child too

Guessed we missed it: Aside from all the local tax revenue from gas and food and lodging (which pays for the law enforcement) what is this massive impact everyone is talking about? How about leaving a comment that won't get deleted.

Large music events and festivals brought in $107.6 million dollars last year. With 11 thousand people, Wakarusa was a big part of that. I'm sure that the Pattons are paying off duty cops for security and the police will make TONS of money from arrests and what not. From what I understand the Ozark police and the local Sheriff are very welcoming of the event.
