Art lovers will want to attend theFall ArtWalk 2008 this weekend in Lancaster, Pa., (between Philadelphia and Harrisburg).

The event will feature more than 50 arts venues. Artworks on display will include mixed media, photography, printmaking, and much more. There will also be special events happening at some galleries, such as pumpkin painting, wine tasting, art demonstrations, and meet-the-artist open houses.

If the art isn't enough to sate your palate (or should we say palette?), there are performances, including a cabaret and a female barbershop chorus, and even "Art on a Plate," where local restaurants present special menus.

Official ArtWalk hours are Saturday 10 a.m.–5 p.m. and Sunday noon–5 p.m. Gallery admission is free; some performing events are admission only. Lancaster's Gallery Row begins at Prince and Walnut Streets; there are lots of downtown parking areas.
