The five free things to do this weekend

November 13, 2008

Keep the beat

Hear some drums and, for drummers, learn some tips to improve your performance, during Shepherd University's Percussion and Drumming Festival on from noon to 3:30 p.m. Sunday. Shepherd University's Frank Center, Shepherds-town, W.Va. For more information, call 410-960-2771 or e-mail

Birds of the night

Give it your best "hoot" and you might just get to spot an owl or two during Renfrew Park's owl walk tonight in Waynesboro, Pa.

The war continues

The Washington Redskins look to sweep the Cowboys for the first time since 2005. The Skins won in Dallas in September. They play on their home turf Sunday night in a critical game, given the tight race in the NFC East. And let's not forget these two teams love to go at each other. 8:15 p.m. Sunday on NBC.

Shopping starts now

Tired of raking those leaves? Enjoy the last of the fall foliage that's still attached to the trees as you take a drive through Franklin County, Pa., to do some holiday shopping Friday and Saturday on the Craftsmen Guild holiday open house. Ten studios and galleries. More than 30 artists and artisans.


Make your heart grow

"You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch." But we still love you. TBS shows the Christmas classic, "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas," at 7:30 Saturday night.
