POTOMAC, Md. (WUSA) -- I love fall weekends for riding my bike, or taking a nice long walk. And if like me, you enjoy our beautiful historic C&O Canal. Put on your towpath chic and view the canal at twilight for the Park After Dark Benefit this Saturday.

The fundraiser is on October 13th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Great Falls Tavern in Potomac. It's a fun outdoor party with live music, chili and cornbread, beer and wine, live and silent auctions, campfires, a Civil War encampment and more.

Last year's sold-out event raised money to support park programs including Canal Quarters and Canal Discoveries. For tickets, go to www.parkafterdark.org or call 301-714-2233. Tickets available for $150 ($115 is tax-deductible).
