Day 2 - Lancaster
This morning, a full breakfast is included before traveling into the heart of Lancaster County to Kitchen Kettle Village. Known to be a quick stop where we stock up on jams and jellies, but today, we’ll stay for a bit longer to take part in a flavorful ‘local bites’ and hands-on whoopie pie making experience! Upon arrival, receive a tote and journey throughout the Village, collecting local favorites. All the while you will learn how to make the famous PA Dutch whoopie pies! Later this afternoon, we take our reserved orchestra seats at Sight & Sound Theatre for their brand new production of “David.” Master Poet, Fearless Warrior, Anointed King. From still waters to shadowed valleys, David’s ascent to the throne is filled with towering giants, wild animals, and Philistine soldiers. After unprecedented victories lead to devastating failures, this passionate warrior will face the biggest battle of all: the one within himself. Join this young shepherd on his journey to become a man after God’s own heart. With original music inspired by the Psalms, David is a state of the art theatrical experience. Watch as this Bible story comes to life with spectacular special effects, massive sets, and live animals. Dinner is served, following the show. (B,D)
