Be a Tourist

Looking for some fun plans this weekend? Look no further than right here in Erie. Here is a list of some great activities that are taking place this weekend!

Kellar’s Modern Magic and Comedy Club Presents David Anthony

Imagine the person that was sitting next to you just a few minutes ago is now up on stage and can’t remember their own name! Or better yet one of your friends is up on the stage claiming that their belly button was stolen. Then with a snap of David’s fingers they enter back into a hypnotic trance. Sounds entertaining huh? This is just the beginning of what to expect in the show. No one is forced to volunteer. David will invite anyone who wants to get hypnotized to join him and fill the 15-20 chairs that are on stage. In just a few moments your friends and the rest of the volunteers fall into a hypnotic trance. Then the fun begins! It is comedy like no other. Mainly because YOU and YOUR FRIENDS are the stars of the show! This show takes place on November 5th and 6th at 7 p.m. To purchase tickets, please call 814-461-0911 or visit Kellar’s website.

Hurry Hill Maple Farm Museum

It’s that time of year again when we turn our attention to cool, foggy mornings; colorful leaves, pumpkins and corn mazes. It’s also time to focus on October’s Maple Sundaes at northwestern Pennsylvania’s only Maple Syrup Museum. Hosted by the Edinboro Area Historical Society, Maple Sundaes in October offer members, friends and travelers a chance to tour the Maple Syrup Museum and get tasty maple ice cream sundaes during every Sunday in October. Visitors can learn about the history of maple syrup production and visit the Miracles on Maple Hill exhibit. The museum is home to the 1956 Newbery Medal awarded to Virginia Sorensen for her acclaimed children’s book, Miracles on Maple Hill, which is set in and around the Edinboro and Cambridge Springs areas. The Edinboro Area Historical Society members will be docents in the museum and will be serving-up $5 ice cream sundaes topped with pure maple syrup each Sunday in October. All proceeds from Maple Sundae sales will benefit the historical society and 20% of all October Sunday Maple product sales will be donated to the EAHS. New to this year’s event will be Edinboro’s own Chameleon Food Truck, a local gem which will be offering a maple menu for the following Sundays in October: 3, 10, 24, and 31 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Maple Menu items include: brisket, baconburgers, chicken quesadillas, pancakes with sausage and pure maple syrup, hot dogs, and salads with maple dressings. Sugar Maple trees can lay claim to the fall beauty in NWPA, come out and enjoy the season. Take the one-half mile new walking trail back into the sugar bush and explore a real sugarhouse. Learn about nature and the production of maple syrup. This event will take place on November 7th at 11 a.m. For more information please visit their website.
