WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The second WaynesboroFest will feature a week's worth of free activities for the whole family.
The borough's triennial celebration will run from Saturday, June 28, through Sunday, July 6. The event will be held in conjunction with Waynesboro's Jubilee, a Fourth of July celebration that includes a parade and fireworks.
Plans include agricultural demonstrations, craft shows, food vendors, children's activities, cemetery bus tours, industrial museum exhibits, a tour of churches, tennis and soccer tournaments, a choir and handbell concert, model railroad club exhibit, Wayne Band concert, children's night at the movies and splash hop at Northside Pool.
A highlight will be "Waynesboro Under the Confederate Flag," a local drama that tells of the 15 days before the Battle of Gettysburg when Confederate troops held Waynesboro. A raffle drawing for such prizes as a John Bell jug and a Civil War print series by local artist Landis Brent Whitsel will be held.
