Description
Here are some of the still standing abandonments and historic buildings one sees as they drive through Tyrone and Haydon...Tyrone is known for its mill, its store and its black smith shop. It is also infamous for an event that took place in 1970 called "The Strawberry Fields Festival"- where acid, mescaline, pot and horse-meat burgers were the staple.

The Strawberry Fields Festival and the Tyrone connection

This massive music festival was held August 7-9, 1970 at Mosport and featured Alice Cooper, Jethro Tull, Grand Funk Railroad, Procul Harum, Ten Years After, Lighthouse, Crowbar and Sly and the Family Stone. John Lennon was to be the headline act, bidding to gain exposure for his peace campaign, but after months of planning he backed out due to differences with the show's promoter. However, the event still used the title of The Beatles' 1967 single of the same name. Led Zeppelin were booked to play but also backed out.

Many of the youth who attended the fest made their way over to Tyrone mill to enjoy the mill pond. Like the youth at Woodstock, they got naked and had an enjoyable skinny dip session that made its way onto CBC tv at the time...I recall seeing this on youtube and will post the link as soon as I find it...Another group made their way to the Vanstone millpond in Bowmanville, also enjoying a nice drug-induced skinny dip (beside Highway 2)...
