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 June - it might help you plan your Friday or Saturday night.
Mike and Sue Edmonds: We're attending the Heartless Bastards' crunchy blues-rock show at Baltimore's Ottobaron Sunday. They started out in Cincinnati, Ohio but are now are now based out of musical hotbed, Austin, Texas. As an added bonus, the formidable Craig Finn of The Hold Steady is touring with them.
Susan Scofield: I am so excited for Second Saturday in The City: Paint The Town this weekend from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a focus on the Royal Square arts community!
Rita King: It's an eventful weekend! Saturday night I'm going to go see The Shake Up play at the Depot at 7 p.m. On Sunday I'll be spending the afternoon at Second Sunday in the Garden at the governor's mansion in Harrisburg. This is a free event for all ages with tours of the Governor's Residence, art and craft activities and more!
Kelley Gibson:The YMCA in downtown York has free family swim from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, so we'll hit the pool and then check out the fun arts activities around downtown as part of Second Saturday in the City. Later I'm taking Joel to History Untapped at the Agricultural & Industrial Museum to enjoy craft beers & food pairings as an early Father's Day treat.
JJ Sheffer: This weekend I'm attending the wedding of two of my dearest friends. Their ceremony will be on the lawn at the Colonial Courthouse, and will be followed by a reception at Central Market, spilling out into Cherry Lane, which they have also rented for the evening. Downtown York is a wonderful place for weddings - there are a lot of interesting options for ceremony and reception sites, many of them within walking distance of each other. Looking forward to a beautiful celebration in York's Market District.
