Musical acts will begin at noon and run through 11 p.m. at the Crete Memorial Civic Center, Route 9 North.

“It all sort of just worked out getting the bands together, Steve and Michael are currently on tour together for the “Anty Up Tour” and we wanted Jamie Lee because of his local ties as he comes from Vermont,” said Wiggins. “We wanted to be the first to sell the Crete Center out and I think we can do that with the mix of local musicians and nationally known country music stars.”

Tickets for the event are $15 for the whole day and children 6 and younger are free. So far Wiggins said they have sold over 4,500 tickets. Wiggins said for liability reasons people can not leave the center and come back.
