First Friday Gettysburg Style: August 2nd Peach Season
Published August 2, 2013
Peaches. York and Adams Counties produce some excellent peaches — sweet, juicy and oh so delicious.
An entire First Friday celebration focused on the fuzzy fruit? Sounds like a perfect way to spend an August evening. You’ll get the chance to sample peach-inspired treats at participating GARMA members.
