CASCADE -- It's 10 a.m. Sunday and Nina Rouzer is facing a barrage of questions, like "How far should the portable toilet be from the ice cream stand?" and "Where are the trash bags?"
Rouzer wipes a strand of hair from her sunburned face and helps coordinate setup for the final day of the fourth annual Mountaintop Heritage Days.
It took six months of planning and repeated site visits to Fort Ritchie since Wednesday to bring Rouzer and other volunteers to this point. They wanted to host a bigger and better festival than ever before, and if the number of visitors is any indication, they succeeded.
"The fact that we've had more things to do and we're in one place, people are really glad," Rouzer said.
More than 5,000 vehicles were counted arriving to Fort Ritchie over the weekend, according to Gary Muller, chairman of the festival sponsor, One Mountain Foundation.
