On September 12, 2019, Land Rush for the 48th Walnut Valley Festival began, despite inclement weather.
Preregistration for the event was from July 1 to 31. Attendees of the festival had the ability to prepay for parking spaces ahead of time to ensure that they would get a camping space for the festival.
Many folks preferred to preregister to ensure they had camping space. As many as 650 people preregistered for the event. Some even prepaid to have electricity as well.
Despite a cloudy morning and stormy afternoon, those at the event did not let the weather damper their mood as they all rushed their vehicles into the campgrounds to claim their spaces.
