Best Bets: Stable tour and strawberry festival

Annie Get Your Gun
7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, May 23-24
2 p.m. Saturday, May 25
Fresta Valley Christian School
6428 Wilson Road, Marshall


Irving Berlin’s musical tells a fictionalized version of the real life story of Annie Oakley, a backwoods girl who became a famous sharpshooter in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show in the late 1800s. The story begins when she wins a shooting match against the traveling-show’s marksman, Frank E. Butler. Romance blossoms, and the fun begins. Ticket are $10 for students, $15 for adults, with a $45 family pass available for the Saturday matinee. Free for children younger than 5, but must have tickets.





Delaplane Strawberry Festival

Sky Meadows State Park, Delaplane


Hayrides, old-fashioned field games, dancing, music, magic, storytelling, crafts, a petting farm, bake sale, hikes in the shadow of the Appalachian Trail, face painting, cake-walking, corn hole and lots of strawberries. $25 per vehicle. Proceeds fund Emmanuel Episcopal Church outreach and grants to community organizations. More info here.
