Things to do this weekend in South Central PA

You may think we are in “the dead of winter”, but there are lots of activities for you to experience in the Mechanicsburg area this weekend.
How about music? “Found it!” in Harrisburg with the Millennium Music Conference! There will be 300 bands performing at 30 different venues starting Friday night and continuing through Sunday. This music fest features a wide range of rock, reggae, rap, folk, and just plain good modern music in the capital city.
On Sunday afternoon, you can hear a little Debussy, Arensky and Dvorak performed by the West Shore Symphony at the Carlisle Theatre. Enjoy even more classical music performed by the Harrisburg Symphony on Saturday and Sunday, February 21 & 22. The concert is titled “Romantic Rhythm”.

If you would rather have an outdoor adventure, find yourself at Roundtop Mountain Resort. Ski conditions are just perfect and some fun competitions are happening there this weekend too. Maybe you would rather enjoy a hike in the winter woods. The staff at Kings Gap State Park will guide you through the park to look for wildlife in the park.

If you need some “retail therapy”, you can watch your newest favorite piece of jewelry being made at The Village Artisans Gallery. Karen Brassel will be at the gallery as an “artist in action”. She will be showing you how she creates her wonderful sterling silver and copper earrings and necklaces.
Stay inside in a “Warm and Cozy Kitchen” at The Kitchen Shoppe & Cooking School. This cooking demonstration features baked shrimp scampi, braised beef with wine and mushroom sauce, and sauntered chicken with artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes. YUM!

Remember all the local restaurants in our area too. We have SO many types of cuisines and price ranges that you will have a tough time choosing a restaurant! In fact, maybe you should try a progressive dinner night – strolling or driving from restaurant to restaurant to enjoy different courses!

Visit South Central PA for a cozy weekend or an active weekend. Whatever your preference, you will say “I found it” in the Cumberland Valley!
