Cottonwoodstock happened here at Cottonwood Village, of course it was a shy bit smaller and the participants were a shy bit older. With the music of the 60's by Johnny Z and Brownies (minus the pot) the party was a smash! This did bring back fun memory's of a time gone by. Employees and residents dressed up for the occasion in festival going hippy garb.
The Woodstock Music & Art Fair—informally, the Woodstock Festival or simply Woodstock—was a music festival in the United States in 1969 which attracted an audience of more than 400,000.

Residents Painted T-Shirts

Remember finger painting as a kid? This was similar, it was a more controlled painting. We decorated T-Shirts, until we ran out of shirts to paint. Residents explored their Leonardo Da Vinci or Jackson Pollock on wearable art. This was not for Kids but did bring out the kid in everyone. We will be doing this again soon!
