The 50th anniversary celebration of Woodstock is still set for mid-August — a number of problems now looking to put the festival at Oneida County's Vernon Downs.

Friday night at the Emerson Resort and Spa in Mount Tremper, they're kicking off a weekend full of events featuring original Woodstock organizer Michael Lang.

Lang is the driving force trying to make sure Woodstock 50 happen. He's hosting a reception and Q&A beginning at 7 p.m. at the resort.
