It’s First Friday…Again!

First Friday Redux

Earlier this month, on the “technical” First Friday, Lancaster got blasted with a nasty evening of heavy rain and some wintry mix thrown in for good measure. I was out and about for the People of Lancaster exhibit by Parked and The Music of the Doors: Performed Live at The Chameleon. I can report first…

Billed as a not so traditional holiday show, the sketch comedy troupe, Happy Time Explosion Show!, will be bringing its unique brand of not-for-kids funny to Zoetropolis, the Lancaster City movie house, for three dates over the holidays.
