October 09, 2008

Military music

What can be more moving than a rousing John Philip Sousa march? The United States Army Field Band and Soldiers Chorus, the musical ambassadors of the U.S. Army and the military's most traveled musicians, will perform Friday evening at North Hagerstown High School.

'Artworks on the Wall'

Expand your artistic horizons with the Potomac River Artists' Guild exhibit this weekend in Shepherdstown, W.Va. "Artworks on the Wall" features 17 artists from the Eastern Panhandle with art in different media including watercolors, collages, pastels and acrylics.

Apple buttering you up

Berkeley Springs Apple Butter Festival is a must for people who love apples in various shapes and forms. The mountains surrounding Berkeley Springs should be erupting with colors while visitors can take in some tasty treats in the quaint town in Morgan County,

Think their tractor's sexy?

After the Apple Butter Festival, swing down W.Va. 9 to Hedgesville for the Dillon Farm Museum's Fall Festival this weekend. The museum shows how farmers had to work before the introduction of hydraulics -- by good, old-fashioned, back-breaking labor.


Fall has arrived

Get there early. Wear comfortable shoes. And get ready to do a lot of walking and buying at the annual Catoctin Colorfest this weekend at Thurmont (Md.) Community Park and Guardian Hose Activities Grounds. About 350 juried artists and crafters are expected at this highlight of the craft-fair season.
