It may be spring, but at least two events in Lancaster County this week will make it feel like Halloween.
For those who are brave, there is a paranormal circus with a rating of R. If others want a family vacation, Elizabeth will celebrate “half way” to Halloween by hunting for garbage, which involves Jack and Sally from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Other options this week include a fundraising event for food trucks, a favorite of fans of arts and crafts shows, a public carnival and the release of an EP from The Interruption.
Here are seven events to check out this weekend in Lancaster County.
Carnival Benefit Park Buchanan Park
The African-American Cultural Alliance of Lancaster will host a three-day carnival in the parking lot of the former St. Joseph’s Hospital. There will be rides halfway, fair games, food and more. Today is Family Day, which means all bracelets for rides cost $ 30. This carnival is traditionally held in Buchanan Park, but its location has changed this year due to the smaller size of the event. The carnival is expected to return in full force in 2023.
