Harley-Davidson open house in York

Tomorrow through Sunday, you can watch the "hog" being assembled at the Harley-Davidson motorcycle plant in York, Pa., and tour the plant's museum. Then travel across town to the York Expo Center to take a demonstration ride on the 2002 Harley and browse displays of Harley merchandise, parts and accessories. There also will be daily motorcycle-riding tours into the Pennsylvania countryside, performances by a variety of bands, including Montgomery Gentry, and food. You can also meet Dave Barr, who toured the world from 1990 to 1994 on a 1972 Harley. And tomorrow evening, York's center city will be turned into a giant street party for Bike Night, which features a motorcycle parade led by the Budweiser Clydesdales, live entertainment and plenty of food.

Factory tours are offered 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily at the plant, Route 30 and Eden Road. The Expo Center, Market Street and Carlisle Avenue, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Hours for tomorrow's Bike Night are 6 to 10. Admission is free. Call 717-852-1852.

National Cathedral marks its 94th year

Climb the Central Tower of the Washington National Cathedral Saturday during an open house that's also a celebration of the majestic building's 94th birthday. Throughout the day, visitors can observe demonstrations of stone-carving, iron- and woodworking and stained-glass making by cathedral artisans. The festivities, which start at 10 a.m. and conclude with an Evensong service at 4 p.m., also feature musical concerts, exterior tours, a display of vestments, crafts, a lecture on plants for the fall garden and more. Children can ride the All Hallows Guild Carousel (listed on the National Register of Historic Places), watch a puppet show and paint flowerpots.

The National Cathedral is at Massachusetts and Wisconsin avenues Northwest. Admission is free; some activities have a small fee. A free shuttle bus from Tenleytown Metro to the Cathedral runs 9:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Call 202-537-3129.
