Stop by the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor booth at the Ligonier Country Market on Saturday to learn more about the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln Highway.

The Lincoln Highway, the nation's first coast-to-coast highway, marked the birth of popular American tourism — vacationing by automobile. Early motorists traveled to see where history was made, to experience the beauty of nature, to learn about regional differences and to have outdoor fun.

Aaron Jones, a ukulele player/singer songwriter from Latrobe, will perform at the Special Features tent on the corner of Aisle B on Saturday from 8 am until Noon at the Ligonier Country Market.

His folk blues sound has been a fixture in the Westmoreland County Open Mic scene.

“I enjoy playing outdoor festivals and coffee shops the most because of a family friendly environment and I can take the family to those if it's early enough. But I don't mind the night life either”, says Jones about playing his ukulele.
