HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The University of Maryland at Hagerstown is undergoing a renaissance — complete with capes and crowns.

It’s all part of the Elizabethtowne Feaste and Frolic Friday evening at the downtown institution.

School officials say they’re transforming the adjacent courtyard into a miniature Renaissance festival featuring actors from the Maryland Renaissance Festival.

The annual event is a scholarship fundraiser. Proceeds in the past three years have enabled the school to award 10 scholarships of $2,500 each.
