Scheduled activities include a car show at 10 a.m. sponsored by Western Maryland Street Rods; corn hole tournament at noon and a Jaws of Life demonstration by the Cresaptown fire department at 1 p.m.

The Maryland State Police medevac helicopter will be present at the ballfield from noon to 2 p.m.

Bounce houses and slides for kids will be open throughout the day along with face painting.

A chip program for child identity will be set up from 1 to 4 p.m.

The Lady Invidia Band will play at 8 p.m. at the ballfield with no cover charge and free admission.

The event is being sponsored by the Cresaptown Volunteer Fire Department and Lashbaugh’s Tavern. Connie’s Concessions will be set up for food and Western Maryland Distributing Co. will be on site from noon to midnight.
