Feet are tapping at the Adams County Fairgrounds for the 2013 Miles of Memories Music Fest. Over a dozen country music acts from as far away as New Zealand are performing Thursday through Saturday. This is the tenth year for the festival. It started at 10:00 am Thursday morning with a crowd of about 300 people. The Music Fest Director says the unique event is all about old time country music. "We come here, we gather here to celebrate that old music that we all grew up with, we just love the old style and we have a big festival. I call it a big party for our friends. We hire a bunch of musicians and have a great time," said Director Mary Schutz. Tickets cost anywhere from $45 for a three day pass to $12 for an afternoon ticket. News 5's Ginger TenBensel is among the performers at Miles of Memories MusicFest. She'll be singing at 2:00 pm on Saturday.
