The top five things to do this weekend

October 23, 2008

Battle of the boo

A fort that once saw bloodshed. Lots of acres of land to get lost in. Oh, yeah, and hopefully some ghosts. Fort Frederick State Park's annual Ghost Walk on Saturday offers something spooktacular. Don't wait until night falls completely. Visitors have to be in line by 9 p.m. to experience the walk.

Where have you been?

Grab a friend, it's time to party in Hagerstown. Everclear headlines for this year's Downtown Live! event from 2 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Gates open at 1 p.m. on the square in downtown Hagerstown.

From page to stage

Playwright Lydia R. Diamond blew away audiences at this summer's Contemporary American Theater Festival with her play, "Stick Fly." She'll be back in Shepherdstown, W.Va., for CATF's Fall Benefit Performance at the War Memorial Building, 102 E. German St. Social hour will begin at 7 p.m., with drinks and hors d'oeuvres from Stone Soup Bistro, followed by Diamond's performance. Tickets cost $40 and can be obtained by calling 304-876-3304.


Go, SpeedRacer, go!

A chill is in the air, but drivers at Hagerstown Speedway will be firing up the track at the 21st annual Octoberfest 350 Saturday and Sunday. Root for your favorite driver at this season-ending races.

Airheads unite

Even the nights seem better when Air Supply's in town. So grab those acid wash jeans and start teasing your air. The pop group of the 1970-'80s will perform Saturday at Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center at Shippensburg University.
