FlipSidePA Panel: York, Pa. First Friday, Red Lion Spectacular, National Museum
Each week, some York County locals share what they are doing this weekend. Some favor art, theater, craft beer, wine or music. Some simply like finding something different to do each week. Whatever your interest, see what they're up to this week in September, I mean, October (it's October already?!) - it might help you plan your Friday or Saturday night.
