York Festival of Lights

During "Christmas Magic: A Festival of Lights" at Rocky Ridge County Park in York, Pa., enjoy a half-mile walking path illuminated with 100,000 lights and holiday scenes. Along the trail are six heated pavilions filled with crafts, train displays and food. You'll even get a chance to talk to Santa Claus.

The event is open through Wednesday and again Dec. 26-30. Hours are 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Friday, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. The park is off Mount Zion Road. Admission is $4, $2 ages 12 and younger. Call 717-840-7440 or 800-673-2429.

Imagination takes the audience to an archaeological dig at a tel (hill) in the Mideast when Adventure Theatre in Glen Echo Park presents the play "Dig 'N Tel," Saturday through Dec. 31 in honor of Israel's 50th anniversary. With a blast of the shofar, camel bells and a Hebraic tune, members of the expedition are transformed into sailors and kings, fools and the wind, as they weave stories about each of their discoveries - all drawn from exotic legends and folk tales, rich in Jewish wisdom and humor.

The theater is at 7300 MacArthur Blvd. in Glen Echo Park, Glen Echo. Performances are 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Saturday-Sunday and 11 a.m. weekdays; closed Dec. 25. Admission is $5. The production is recommended for ages 4 and up. Reservations are suggested. Call 301-320-5331.
