Annual country, old time music festival takes place in Bloomfield

Hundreds of RVs packed the Davis County Fairgrounds for the 42nd annual Old Time Music Festival

Around 250 RVâ??s packed the park at the Davis County Fairgrounds for the 42nd annual Country and Old Time Music festival.

â??Darin and I are just proud as punch to be on the committee for the festival for the first time this year although we've been coming to the festival for about 10 years,â?? Cara Manson said, â??and we just love it.â??

They are also in the line-up to play on the main stage with their band Fine Line Bluegrass.

â??There's gonna be country, bluegrass, old time music on that and also up here you can here in the background, we have some good dance music going on here at the country dance stage,â?? Darin Manson said.

Many couples tore up the dance floor including Rudy and Jackie Zemo who have been married for 54 years.

â??We love to dance,â?? Jackie Zemo said. â??We try to go dancing every Saturday night, but my health hasn't been that good, so we still listen to polka music on TV and we enjoy coming to music festivals and try to dance.â??

Lorene and Bob Allen will both celebrate their 83rd birthdays soon, but they say the music keeps them young.

â??We were here last year and we really enjoyed it,â?? Lorene Allen said. â??We have a great time here. I play guitar and we sing. We have fun.â??

For Louise Mincks, the festival brings back memories of her husband who passed away five-and-a-half years ago.

â??They sang some Hank Williams and Johnny Cash songs tonight that he would have loved to have heard.â??

Organizers say the event runs on donations, and any revenue generated goes back to fairground improvement and upkeep.
