Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, and Sullivan County, N.Y. is going all out in honor of its golden anniversary.

Per The Times Herald-Record, 36 fiberglass doves will be delivered to different Sullivan County communities that will create a “dove trail” the iconic music festival.  Right now, the five feet by seven feet doves are white, but local artists will be chosen and will paint each dove creating a unique art installation.

So far, this is the only confirmed celebration of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, however, a 50th anniversary festival is reportedly in the works.
