This is the ninth year for the festival in the city just 20 miles north of Milwaukee. The Grafton Blues Association launched the event to honor the village's links to blues music and the musicians who recorded for the historic Paramount Records label. Along with music, the event features vendors and food and beverage stands. While the festival is held in Lime Kiln Park, Grafton's downtown is a "must visit" for its reflection on the area's blues heritage, with a Walk of Fame, fountain and con- cert area. General admission to the festival of $20 includes Friday and Saturday while single day is $10. Advance tickets are $10 for both days and are available at Raymond's Auto Body in Cedarburg on HWY 60 and Kohler Credit Union. Check for updates and informa- tion. C E D A R B U R G
