My Uncle Hugh MacGregor (since passed) was one of the original promoters out of Toronto of the Festival Express. He had lived in Winnipeg for a long time before moving to Toronto. He Worked for the Industrial Trade show division of Mclean Hunter at the time. Some how with all of the protesting and logistics this festival train lost a ton of money but he didn't lose his job. He said to me "they got so caught up in the loss of the money that they forgot to fire me!" I was too young to attend the event but my oldest brother and sister did and it was an eye opening event for them. People making love in large cardboard boxes in the middle of the field. Lots of "sixties stuff" going on around them. I was so excited when the movie came out as I have always had a personal family connection to the festival express. Yes the promoters lost a ton of money but the performers loved the train. It is history with some very solid Winnipeg connections.
