Something going on May 5 weekend?

I'm looking for hotels in town with 2 beds May 3-5 and am finding many hotels booked. Is something going on that weekend?

Good question! It's not commencement or the bluegrass festival or any of the usual events, and the Gettysburg event calendar doesn't show much out of the ordinary except for the Apple Blossom Festival. ??? I'm curious...but May is the month of school group tours. A search for May 4-6 turns up more rooms, so it might be the Thursday night that's the problem.

I'd be interested to hear if there is something interesting happening!

Thanks for the reply. I did a Google search and couldn't find any events either. Maybe everyone booked was thinking the same as me, that it wouldn't be a busy time of year.

As Aster indicated, late April through all of May is the school group period, and a lot of hotels fill up. Especially weekdays. Maybe consider a B&B, school groups don't go to them.

Starting Friday evening May 4 thru Sunday May 6, the Rites of Spring Festival (http://www.rosfest.com/) is taking place at the Majestic Theater. This will be the 9th year of fantastic progressive rock music from all over the globe. If you're in town this weekend I would recommend trying to catch a few concerts.
