A couple who met each other at the famous Woodstock Festival in 1969 are still together 50 years later - and have recreated their very first photo together!

Judy and Jerry Griffin met at Woodstock, after Judy's car broke down on New York's Tappan Zee Bridge, around 90 miles from the concert site.

She and the two friends she was travelling with decided to hitchhike, which was when Jerry came along to save the day in a VW Beetle.

Speaking to People in 2019, Judy, who was 71 at the time of the interview, recalled: "I was just thinking, 'Damn, now we can't go', and we were dying to.

"Then Jerry and his friends pulled up. I stuck my head in and I saw that there was a woman in the car.

"I'd never hitchhiked before, but I figured, 'Well, since there was a woman, it was fairly safe, and I probably should just get in the car'."

Fast forward five decades, and the couple have two sons and five grandchildren.

How sweet!
