The top five things to do this weekend

October 30, 2008

She might just call you 'Friend'

"You Should Hear How She Talks About You." But when you do, "Don't Cry Out Loud." Melissa Manchester will sing at least one of these hits Saturday night at The Capitol Theatre.

Mummers in moonlight

It's time for one of the United States' largest nighttime parades -- the Mummers Parade in downtown Hagerstown. Don't forget the Saturday parade starts an hour early this year; it begins at 6 p.m.

Christian values

Who would have thought a Christian singer would dedicate a song to Britney Spears? Bebo Norman did and his heartfelt ballad apologizes for how the world has treated her. Norman will be performing onstage with MercyMe, known for their hit "I Can Only Imagine."

Sound off!

Ready. Set. March! High school marching bands from Washington County and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia are among those competing at 2 p.m. Saturday at North Hagerstown High School's Mike Callas Stadium in the Tournament of Bands Chapter 13 Championship. The University of Maryland's marching band will also perform before heading over to the Mummers Parade. $7 for adults; $5 for students and senior citizens. Call Mr. Karacz at 301-766-8238


Flirting with death

It's Nora Roberts. No, it's J.D. Robb. Roberts will be signing her new J.D. Robb book, "Salvation in Death," at Turn the Page Bookstore in Boonsboro on Saturday afternoon. Other authors also are expected at the book-signing.
