Why is the event called Three Stacks?   

The iconic stacks of the Eckert Power Plant can be seen for miles in any direction when entering Lansing, and are just west of the festival grounds. We’re inspired seeing the massive man-made structures out of our office window every day, and though we’re ready to move on from coal power, we’re appreciative of and awed by the majesty of the 615-feet-tall smokestacks (the area’s tallest self-supporting structures!), affectionately nicknamed Wynken, Blynken, and Nod after the 1889 Eugene Field children’s poem.
