The "Bach to Rock" festival was to be a series of one-day concerts to last though the summer of 1970. It was canceled by court injunction. That didn't stop some 10,000 -15,000 people from showing up and invading Mountaindale. The owners of the Summit Hotel in nearby S. Fallsburg invited everyone over for a Peoples Party.
