The top five things to do this weekend

November 20, 2008

'Life's a Dance'

"I Swear" that John Michael Montgomery has returned to the country spotlight. Funny, how "Time Flies," but we promised we'd love him "Forever." He'll be playing some old favorites as well as songs from his new album Saturday night at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick, Md.

Happy Holly-day

An evening at Hollyfest might just make you want to go home and deck those halls. Five local middle and high schools along with five other children's organizations perform holiday favorites at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 24, at The Maryland Theatre. For more information, go to

'Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Even Beethoven thought that Handel was the greatest composer who ever lived, and if you've ever heard "Messiah," you know why. Now nearly 300 years later, the Hood College Choir, with Mount St. Mary's choir and local community members will present the oratorio on Saturday and Sunday.

Choo-choo for you

The Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum's holiday-themed O-gauge model train layout is a little too big to set under your Christmas tree. That's just one reason to make the annual holiday trek to see the trains Friday through Sunday.


Checking your list

There's only 34 shopping days until Christmas. Check out the Kris Kringle Craft and Gift Show at Hagerstown Community College' Athletic, Recreation and Community Center Saturday and Sunday and get a jump start on your friends and family's wish lists. Bring a food item or new toy to help local needy families spread the holiday cheer.
