6 things to do in York this weekend

Here are six fun ways to spend the weekend for local music lovers, beer and wine drinkers and families.

See a Kable House show

You'll hear a mishmash of blues, folk, soul, bluegrass and maybe even some classic '50s rock at Patrick Sweany's Kable House Presents show Friday night. He'll perform an intimate show with special guest UncleBrotherCousin at Central Market House at 8 p.m. The doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $14.

Meet actors from 'The Walking Dead'

Fans of “The Walking Dead” won’t want to meet this meet-and-greet opportunity with actors from the show at downtown York’s newest gaming destination: Timeline Arcade. Some of the actors include Jeremy Ambler from season two, Santiago Cirilo from season four and Amber Dawn Fox from season five. Read more about them at A $20 ticket also includes ‘80s toy and comic vendors and unlimited gaming. The event will go from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday.

See 'DWTS' pros on stage 

Can’t get enough of “Dancing with the Stars”? Then, make sure to get tickets to Ballroom with a Twist – a show that brings some of your favorite performers from “Dancing with the Stars,” “So You Think You Can Dance” and “American Idol” all to one stage. The show, hosted by former "DWTS" pros Anna Trebunskaya and Dmitry Chaplin, comes to the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Expect to see everything from Latin to contemporary and even b-boy style. That should be enough dancing to tide you over until the “DWTS” finale.

Drink wine

Spend Saturday and/or Sunday afternoon sipping your choice of more than 250 Pennsylvania wines at the Taste of Pennsylvania wine festival at the York Fairgrounds. The event, held from noon to 6 p.m. both days, will also feature local food, vendors and live music. General admission is free, and daily wine passes start at $25.
