WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Hoping to hold onto the spirit of last summer's 200th anniversary celebration, the committee that planned and ran the two-month-long event is now planning to hold a shorter version every third year.
The consensus among the 14-member committee is that the new festival, tentatively set for the 10 days following the third Friday in September, will be called WaynesboroFest, said Allie Kohler, coordinator for the recent bicentennial.
Holding it over 10 days means it will be spread over two weekends.
The first WaynbesboroFest will be held in the year 2000. Its purpose will be to maintain community involvement, Kohler has said.
