(Harrisburg) -- A popular tradition at the Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg turns 60 this year.

Thousands of people line up to purchase the event's milkshakes annually.

When the creamy and rich shake first showed up at the show, it only cost a quarter.

But despite the increase in price to four dollars over the years, a new generation is getting hooked on the shakes, like country singer Ben Gallaher.

"There's no comparison."

The Farm Show runs until Saturday at the Farm Show Complex, and admission is free.
