Posted on October 14, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

A typical scene of the crowds and vendors in downtown Mt. Sterling during the annual Court Day on October 16, 1983. This year’s Court Day Festival starts today and runs through Monday. Always scheduled to run through the first Monday of October, it has taken place every year since 1794 drawing about 200,000 people to Mt. Sterling, the county seat of Montgomery County. The festival quickly became the annual trading day for the surrounding area an today features arts, crafts, food and music. Photo by Tom Woods II | Staff
