This weekend

Staying in Intercourse for the weekend. Have never been here during Dec. Aside from Kitchen Kettle Village and xmas shows is anything special going on in this area or near by that we should know about. We will be eating at Dienner's my favorite place. Any other place comparable?

I can't think of anything at the moment, though I am SURE there is plenty scheduled! You might want to check out the links I posted in another thread for community calendar events:

If you are bringing any kids with you, Thomas is in town at the Strasburg RR. Also, Dutch Wonderland is open for Winter Wonderland, and it's only like $10 to get in. I love strolling through downtown Lancaster this time of the year, have you ever been downtown? It is beautifully decorated and there are lots of shops to browse and places to eat (have lunch at Character's Pub, you won't regret it!). Central Market is open on Saturdays at 6 am and there is a great model train display set up at the Citizens Bank across the square from market.

If you make it downtown, there's a lot going on. It's First Friday - if you have any interest in art, this is a great monthly event. All the galleries and shops stay open late and many have artist's receptions and free wine/cheese/snacks.

In addition to the model train display and holiday decorations, Santa is in Binn's Park all weekend. There's holiday karaoke on Friday night and horse drawn carriage rides all weekend, both in the square - where the mayor just lit the tree last weekend. And strolling musical entertainment throughout the downtown area Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Have fun!

Like ocfunky said, Dutch Wonderland might be something you'd enjoy. The park is really decorated nicely and the light show they have is neat! We went for the 1st time last weekend and enjoyed it.

Also, depending how far you want to travel, Hershey is also having their Christmas Event and it is a really nice event! The park looks beautiful with all of the lights and decorations. Its fun to go walk around, ride some rides, and of course, enjoy some chocolate. There is a combo ticket for both Dutch Wonderland and Hershey for $13.00, quite the deal! Hershey is about 35 or so minutes from Lancaster.

Thankyou very much to all that responded. Downtown Lancaster sounds good. Leaving in a few hrs. Can't wait! One of my favorite places in the world.

Happy Holidays!
