Because Bedford County is only 30 minutes from the Mason Dixion Line, it was a greatly traveled; yet scary paths.
The celebration has historians, gospel music, jazz, artists, rib cook-off, food vendors, crafts, children's activities and much more.
The FREE EVENT is held at Bedford County Fairgrounds 10-5 and there is lots of parking. For more information call 814 623-7102 or www.undergroundrailroadride.com
