This weekend is no different with temperatures in the 70’s and late 60’s! This weekend is a perfect opportunity to take in the beautiful fall season in Gettysburg.

Get in the fall spirit at Adams County Winery’s 2nd Annual Harvest Festival:
Visit Adams County Winery (Farm Winery) on Saturday, September 22nd from 1:00pm-5:00pm for great food, music, a Lucy look-a-like contest, home wine making contest, and one of the biggest hits of last year: the grape stomp! This event is FREE!

Enjoy free tours throughout the day. Bring a picnic lunch or purchase food from Uncle Moe’s Soul Food. Prizes will be given to game and contest winners throughout the day. Entertainment will be provided by two bands, Sylvia’s Suitcase and RePlay.
