WILLIAMSPORT - Charmain Summers made her son reschedule his wedding's dress rehearsal when she learned Williamsport once again was holding one of her favorite hometown events - a "street dance. " When the dance began, about 6 p.m., as others began unfolding their lawn chairs, setting up wallflower spots along the curbs of East Salisbury Street, Summers already had claimed her spot on the dance macadam. "We used to come to this when we was teenagers," Summers, 53, said and smiled, all the while shifting her hips to the music.

"Once we were at Disney World in Florida," recounted Jeanne's daughter, Marilynn Miller, 64, who was visiting her mother from Naples, Fla., "and this man came up to us and said 'Jeannie, who's making the steamers?'" Miller and her mother, who's now 88, shared hardy laughs and anecdotes from the living room of her Williamsport home.

julieg@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The new tradition of Charles Town Heritage Day continues Saturday, May 21. Last year, the first one was held during three days to celebrate the completion of the Washington Street renovation, event officials said. "Each building in downtown has a connection to the past for the community. Each structure has a story to tell. That story basically represents everybody that has lived in this area from the past, the time the town was started, until now," said volunteer Shirley Calhoun.

SMITHSBURG -- The community of Smithsburg might seem to have a proverbial spring in its step at the 15th annual Smithsburg Pride Days event. After Pride Days thrived for more than a decade as a street festival, organizers moved the event last year to Veterans Park. During the transition, the committee maintained its previous vendors, added fireworks and other attractions, and drew a crowd of around 2,500 people. This year, Pride Days burgeoned, more than doubling its number of vendors from less than 30 to 74, adding additional attractions and offering a more elaborate fireworks display.

Music lovers gathered to enjoy some live music at the inaugural River Rat Street Dance/Concert in Williamsport on Friday evening. The concert, held near the intersection of North Conococheague and Salisbury streets, was a precursor to the C&O Canal Days event this weekend in Williamsport. Joan Knode, the town's assistant mayor, said the concert was being held to build excitement around the weekend. The “River Rat” used to be the mascot for Springfield Middle School in Williamsport, and local sports teams also used to call themselves the River Rats, according to Knode.
