Lancaster Liveliness

It is officially fall (despite what the meteorologists report), and Lancaster has no shortage of activities to embrace the community, enter the outdoors, and enjoy the weather.  The first of many tempting offers on the list of activities is the Strasburg Railroad Open House on October 18th.  Whether you have a 3-year old you want to amuse, or you are just curious about local transportation history, the open house is a charming event for all ages.  If you are not an aspiring history buff but still want to socialize in the community, the Garden Spot Village Paint Party might be for you.  Held at the Indoor Village Park on October 26 at 6:30 pm, you can learn how to paint while hanging out with fellow community members.  For the Lancastrians who just want to sit back and enjoy the sounds of the city, the Fulton Opera House is opening its doors for a free Open Rehearsal of the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra on October 26 from 2:30-4:00pm.  Come listen to great music, snap some photos in the historical Fulton theatre, and enjoy a free afternoon out.  Athletes and runners also have fun in this town; on October 28th join the Trick or Trot 5k at Woodward Hill Cemetery and Lancaster County Central Park.  Run alongside other locals through the scenic course and receive food, t-shirt, and a race bag for your hard work!  If you appreciate sports but do not want to workout yourself, you can attend a high school football game and support the local athletes.  On October 20th, Hempfield visits East Lampeter during Conestoga Valley’s senior night, while across town Manheim Township hosts Wilson.  Lancaster is a city bursting with culture and liveliness no matter your interests.  For the exhaustive list of events visit:

We can’t wait to see you out and around town!
