BLUE RIDGE SUMMIT, Pa. - The third and final day of Mountain Top Heritage Days split activities between the main corner of Blue Ridge Summit and the former Fort Ritchie U.S. Army base in Cascade, Md.
Visitors were encouraged to board shuttle buses that took them from the modern-day craft and food vendors in Blue Ridge Summit to the 1940s-style events at the base.
Under the theme "Swinging into Summer," dance demonstrations and oldies music begged picnickers to tap their feet by one of the former base's lakes. Popcorn and pit beef were served during the "old-timers softball game" honoring The Summiteers.
Inside, displays offered a preview of the Fort Ritchie museum in early development stages for the house once used by both the chaplain and captain.
