Art and ... Alpacas?
Yes, you have a lot of fun and exciting choices this weekend in Lancaster County! You could head downtown for First Friday tonight. Walk around and explore 70+ arts venues. If you have kids, be sure to stop by the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design for "Storytelling Through Art". Participants at this FREE family event, will have children's stories by 2010 Caldecott Medal winner Jerry Pinkney read to them by actors from the Fulton Theatre.
This weekend also kicks off the Annual Fall Open House at Eastland Alpacas in Mount Joy. Visitors, including children, can "get up close and personal with an alpaca or baby cria." Enjoy a wagon ride, view an obstacle course demonstration by the 4-H Club, and then stop by the "Boutique" featuring a variety of items made from warm, soft alpaca fibers. Here is a photo taken during last year's open house:
Have a fanastic fall weekend; whatever you do. And if you're running in the Amish Country Bird-In-Hand Half Marathon on November 6th - We wish you good luck!
