Holidays in Gettysburg

Hello all, I am headed to Gettysburg next week for a long weekend. Just curious if there are any must do events or anything of the sort going on that weekend. Of course I will be visiting the battlefield and other historic sites but I am bringing my gf along who is not much for history and would like some neat things to take her too. Thanks!

And also curious how crowded it gets in the winter, I have always been in the summer months, mostly as a reenactor years ago and then some as a tourist. Needless to say it can be overwhelming at times. Hoping this late in the year will be a little more laid back.

It's First Friday so many merchants in town will have specials. gettysburgretailmerchants.com/PDFs/firstfrid…

Check the events calendar for the weekend: www.gettysburg.travel/visitor/event.asp

It won't be packed in town compared to the summer, but weekends the restaurants are busier.

One of our favorite things to do is visit Frederick MD for first Saturday. Vibrant downtown area with many very good restaurants. It is a short distance down Rt15 from Gettysburg.
