Rainbow Family gathering results in citations

Authorities have recorded more than 370 incidents, including 120 violation notices, in the past week as people flock to the Santa Fe National Forest for the Rainbow Family of Living Light's annual gathering.

CUBA, N.M. —

Authorities have recorded more than 370 incidents, including 120 violation notices, in the past week as people flock to the Santa Fe National Forest for the Rainbow Family of Living Light's annual gathering.

The Rainbow Family is an informal group of self-styled hippies and peace activists that meets each year on public lands.

Forest officials said Monday that 1,500 people participating in this year's gathering are camped in the Parque Venado area east of Cuba. In all, between 10,000 and 12,000 people are expected to attend the gathering from July 1-7.

Forest Service spokesman Lawrence Lujan says most of the violation notices handed out since June 14 are related to alcohol, and drug and traffic violations. Some of the people who were issued notices were required to appear Monday in federal court in Albuquerque.

Lujan says officers will continue to monitor the event.
