Saturday will continue to be an action-packed day in Greencastle. Two major events coincide April 19 to provide activities for residents and visitors alike.

First, the pitter-patter of many feet entered the streets by mid-morning. The seocnd annual Flannery’s Pub Run, a half-marathon which started in Mercersburg at 8:30 a.m. saw competitors, males and females of all ages, traversing the back roads and entering Greencastle from Williamson Road. They crossed the finish line on North Washington Street with Ryan Amsley winning the event.

A Morning Kids Mile Run was held in Greencastle with Adam Murr of Greencastle the winner.

The second annual Pub Run is a fundraiser for G-A MAAX in Greencastle, and Fix JB Sports in the Tuscarora School District.

The afternoon is destined to keep people in downtown Greencastle, as the first Craft Beer Festival will be held from 1 - 4 p.m. in the John Allison Public House parking lot on East Baltimore Street. Tickets are $12 for a commemorative cup, three 3-ounce sample pours, and one 16-ounce full pour. Additional pours are available. Twenty craft breweries will offer over 30 different samples. Participants must be at least 21 years old and present proof of age. Designated drivers are eligible for prizes at hourly drawings. Concessions will be available and music will be provided by the Drew Adams Project.
