2011 Philadelphia Folk Festival: Campers sprint for top spots video

The Philadelphia Folk Festival staged its annual camping site run on Thursday morning. This tradition requires tent campers to sprint with their living accommodations to a field where they claim their land for the duration of the festival. 

Howard Pitkow was up in a cherry-picker bucket and caught the start of the sprint on video for NewsWorks.
