Peace and love and arrests UPDATE

Posted By on Thu, Jun 28, 2007 at 12:56 PM

The Forest Service has issued an update on the Rainbow Family gathering in the Big Piney Ranger District of the Ozarks Natoinal Forest near Fallsville. About 2,000 people are camping there now. Said the release: So far this year, 198 violation notices have been issued to Rainbow Gathering participants, mostly for drug and alcohol related offfenses and traffic and vehicle violations. In addition, 22 arrests have been made for various offenses including drugs, interference with law enforcement officers and outstanding warrants." Hmmm. Can you skateboard in the National Forest?

UPDATE: Here's an Arkansas blogger with coverage of the gathering, plus plenty of Hot Springs skateboard commentary.
