October 8, 1987 — The 18th annual Page County Heritage Festival this Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 10 and 11, will present a varied program of events celebrating the county’s pioneer history.
This year’s festival crowd will be increased by the arrival of 750 passengers Saturday aboard a special excursion train from Hagerstown, Md. The excursion, sponsored by the Winchester Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, has been sold out.
The popular historical pageant, “Oh, Shenandoah,” will be performed at the Luray High School auditorium Saturday and Sunday.
