Where was my 1967 VW Bus “Spicoli” 50 years ago today? Woodstock?

If he was, I’m sure he didn’t remember. I was a sprite 6 years old then and “Spicoli” was only 2 ½ years old. There were approx. 400,000 people who attended but shortly after you could probably count 2 million people who claimed they were there but I can tell you, I was not.

While the Anniversary Concert got cancelled, you can transport yourself back to the 60’s by renting my hippie photobooth bus for any occasion. Get On The Bus and Rock On!

Woodstock was a music festival held August 15–18, 1969, which attracted an audience of more than 400,000. Billed as "an Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music", it was held at Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm in Bethel, New York, 43 miles southwest of Woodstock

Could this be “Spicoli”?

Woodstock 50 – scheduled to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the legendary music festival – has been canceled.

Although the all-star lineup – featuring Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, Dead & Company, the Raconteurs and dozens more, including acts from the original Woodstock fest were booked to play the Watkins Glen, New York festival on August 16th through 18th, exactly 50 years after the original festival the investors have now back out of the festival. There is ensuing controversy between the promoters and investors as the promoter continue to try and resurrect the event and deny it being cancelled.

The Kentucky Derby only has 19 horses running. That ain’t nothin!

My photobooth bus, Spicoli, has 54 horses running. It will blow them away. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow but don’t worry, Spicoli loves the slop. It's in his bloodlines. His father was a mudda', his mother was a mudda'.

So place your bet on Spicoli to be a winner at your next event.
