The Rolling Rock Town Fair, featuring the Chili Peppers, Moby, Marcy Playground and other acts, is scheduled for Aug. 5. The makers of Rolling Rock beer in nearby Latrobe are sponsoring the show, and about 35,000 people are expected to attend.

Westmoreland County Judge William Ober, who owns farmland near the fairgrounds, dropped his court challenge to the show but filed a complaint Thursday in which he seeks to limit the noise at any other concerts.

Ober said he dropped the case against the Town Fair because it cost too much and took too much time.

“I hoped all along that this would fade into the sunset quietly without getting into a courtroom battle,” said David Pohland, an attorney for the fairgrounds.

Pohland said the concert promoters have assured him that they are prepared to handle problems with the crowd. About 250 security guards have been hired.

Other neighbors of the fairgrounds have organized as a group, Concerned Neighbors of the Westmoreland Fairgrounds, and expressed concerns about trespassing. David Ludvick of Unity Township predicted traffic problems related to the show.

The fairgrounds has been the host of a chicken and rib festival featuring 30,000 people.
