Whitehorse Mountain Amphitheatre is about 10 miles from the tragic landside of March 22.

In a show of support for local communities affected by the slide, festival organizers will give away a limited number of tickets to those who post messages of support for Oso residents. The giveway ends April 9, and winners will be selected randomly.
