Holzhackerbuam. No, that's not what people exclaim when they see the wood-chopping musical/dance group perform. It is a group of men and women who chop and saw wood to music, creating a dance of coordination. Holzhackerbuam, which is Bavarian for "wood chopper boys," will return for this year's Augustoberfest in Hagerstown, said Charles Sekula, event co-chairman and owner of Schmankerl Stube Bavarian Restaurant. Augustoberfest is the local version of Oktoberfest, which began in Munich, Germany, in 1810 when King Ludwig I celebrated his marriage to Maria Therese by inviting nobles for a week of partying and jousting, Sekula said.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Main Street Waynesboro Inc. on Saturday will host the third annual Market Day, which is in a good position to set a record for the number of participating vendors. Organizers said they are expecting 38 to 40 artisans, merchants, organizations and direct sales companies for the 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. event. "It's tripled," Carole Malin said, comparing participation to the 2006 event. Food offerings include chicken barbecue from the Waynesboro Volunteer Fire Department, hot dogs from the Brothers of the Brush, ice cream from Antietam Dairy and baked goods from the Waynesboro Lioness Club, according to Malin, the administrator for nonprofit Main Street Waynesboro Inc. "The entertainment will be a real highlight," she said.

Blosel accepts all this. "That's just the way it is. That's how I grew up. This needs to get done.
