UPPER SALFORD — Best friends Sharon Jarrett of West Chester and Bonnie Blacklock of the Florida Keys, both 60, sat inside Jarrett’s blue minivan outside the entrance gate of the Philadelphia Folk Festival’s campground early Thursday morning waiting for their turn to mark their territory.

“We’re just two moms who have been going to this event for years, always having a great time,” said Blacklock.

The duo, as well as 20,000 folk fanatics, are spending the next four days in Upper Salford at Old Pool Farm to attend the 51st annual Philadelphia Folk Festival.

For several hours on Thursday, thousands waited their turn as one by one and car by car, campers headed into the campground area pulling wagons full of weekend essentials — like tents, clothes, food and instruments — through thick and muddy grass to enter the gated grounds.
