3 things to do in and around Franklin County this weekend
It's wet, wild and wonderful and it's in the middle of downtown Hagerstown! This 825-foot water slide will take its guests down along West Washington street, from Walnut and Prospect street to University Plaza. This is a great way to cool off in the hot summer heat, and the kids will love it, too. The ride officially opens at 11 a.m. on Aug. 29. For more information, click here.
Residents of the Chambersburg area will get a taste of unique storytelling when three storytellers visit Chambers Fort Park this weekend.
