Woodstock 50th Anniversary Celebration

Marco Island Yacht Club (MIYC) celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock with dancing and dining to the tunes of Creedence Clearwater, Grace Slick, Janis Joplin and more.

Yacht Club members dressed in the look of that day, August 15, 1969, with bell bottoms, tie dye, long hair and the “girls” with flowers in their hair.

Singer Nevada Smith dressed for the occasion and kept everyone on their feet reminiscing over the old tunes.

The buffet was topped off with “Alice B. Toklas” brownies, and funny cookies.

One member who had actually been at the original Woodstock shared memories of the 400,000 thousand attendees who gathered on the 600 acre Yasgur Farm in Upstate New York.

Chef Robert Aylwin and member Owen O’Shaugh-nessy sang Dylan and Crosby Stills & Nash tunes.
