Gallagher still smashes


Can you believe Gallagher is still smashing watermelons after all these years? Seems as though the schtick would get old after this many, well, decades.

The fruit destroyer brings his show to Ocean City tomorrow. So wear a raincoat, and do your best to avoid the flying fruit.

Gallagher performs at the Ocean City Convention Center, 4001 Coastal Highway, at 8 p.m. tomorrow. $25.50-$30. Tickets at convention center box office or at 410-481-SEAT.

Folk festival

Flax is the theme of this year's Goschenhoppen Historians' Folk Festival in East Greenville, Pa., tomorrow and Saturday.

Meet 18th- and 19th-century villagers, including an iceman in his horse-drawn wagon and a tramp. Go back to a time when horses were the only form of transportation and meals were cooked on wood stoves. Watch villagers in period clothing demonstrate woodworking and metalsmithing. And learn how people darned their socks and decorated their Easter eggs years ago.

The festival runs noon-8 p.m. tomorrow and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday at New Goschenhoppen Park, Third Street, East Greenville in northern Montgomery County, Pa. $7 adult donation; free for ages 12 and under. Call 215-234-8953 or visit www.goschenhoppen .org.
