In addition to a terrific musical line-up, delicious ethnic food and an array of nonprofit booths, the 28th annual Adams County Heritage Festival will feature passports for visitors to a variety of cultural displays. Scheduled for Sept.15, from noon until 4 p.m., the festival will take place at the Gettysburg Recreation Park on Long Lane. The festival planning committee has also announced a rain venue inside at the YWCA. The show will go on, whatever the weather.

And what a show it is. First off, at noon, will be Rodney Yeaple, bag piper and pipemaster of the York Pipe Band, who marches around the perimeter of the festival to officially open it. Proclamations and invocations will be followed at 12:15 p.m. by a lively Irish duo, the Rovin’ Bog Hoppers. Dancers from the Shree Academy of Indian Dance in Mechanicsburg will perform graceful Bharat Natyam dance at 1:10 p.m. in shimmering traditional costumes.
