Running since 1968, Greater York Antique Show's events carry almost as much history as the pieces of Americana they display. Collectors from more than a dozen states, and even as far as Portugal, set up stalls filled with nostalgic items. Furniture, folk art, and paintings imbue go on display, ready to bring a comforting, old-time charm to their new homes. There are even hand-crafted quilts for sale to remind us of the Depression-era practice of sewing all of your money into one big sheet for safekeeping.
When the overhead lights go down at Colony Park Lanes, it doesn’t always mean it's time to go home. On Friday and Saturday evenings, it signals the start of Glow Bowling, preparing pin pummelers for a night of heart-pumping beats, black lights, fog, and glow-in-the-dark lanes that lasts until 1 a.m. It's just one of many things that draws families to the 32-lane alley, which also boasts a game room and full lounge with five big-screen TVs. Daytime games invite bowlers to roll strikes under traditional lighting as 180-inch above-lane projection screens play music videos and sports coverage, saving visitors the trouble of interviewing their own bowling balls. The center also welcomes kids for birthday parties that include unlimited frames, pizza or hot dogs, and balloon party favors, and can equip lanes with optional bumpers to ensure youngsters have an even playing field at all times.
Today, she owns an art studio profiled by Fox 43 and magazines, but in 2011, Stacey just wanted to make friends. She had just moved to New Freedom from New Orleans and didn't know anyone yet. Stacey's brainstorming?and her outgoing nature?led her to consider sip and paint parties; eventually, this train of thought carried her all the way through the creation of her very own studio. There, art lovers from all walks of life hold a glass in one hand and a paintbrush in the other as an instructor guides them through the creation of an easy-to-follow image. But sip and paint parties aren't the only events filling A Splash of Art's agenda. In addition to being available for private events, the studio is mobile: staff members pack up paints to pay house calls, and wineries host painting events that supply their varietals to visiting canvas smearers.
On York City Ice Arena's two 85'x200' NHL-sized rinks, both kinds of on-ice athletes live in harmony; hockey players compete in multiple tournaments every year, and figure skaters twirl with finesse during regular public-skating sessions. Instructors also host lessons for newcomers of all ages, helping students with their footwork, forward crossovers, and maintaining their balance while using one skate to pick their teeth. Beyond the twin tundra, the arena contains several amenities for casual visitors and persistent athletes, including a pro shop, snack bar, and fitness center.
