Jack Pearadin and Doug Nelsen found a 1.73-carat diamond after nearly a year of searching the park's field.
Photographer Grav Weldon, who braved the mud and crazy storms of Wakarusa two weeks ago, provides the Times with shots from the very, very, very different festival that took place at that same venue the next weekend.

More photos after the jump, including Arkansas native Justin Moore, Gretchen Wilson, Colt Ford and one of Toby Keith that has all of the things that make him Toby Keith: cowboy hat, red Solo cup, product endorsement, explosions.
Thank you so much, Leslie, and the Arkansas Times for your support of the arts…
