Every day feels like Saturday when you’ve got great things to do.

For produce and a show: Starting at 9:45 a.m., kids and their parents will hear a story about peaches and then head out into the fields at Weaver’s Orchard in Morgantown, P.A. to go pick some.

The course runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight.
