From PA Turnpike and Lancaster (Route 283):
From the PA Turnpike, take Exit 19, the Harrisburg East exit. After paying the toll, continue straight - the road becomes Route 283 North. From Route 283 from Lancaster, follow the signs for "283 North to Harrisburg", which is just before the expressway ends. From either origin, follow 283 North for about 2 miles, then take exit 3B, following the signs to "83N to 81, West 322". After passing through the Eisenhower Interchange at this exit, go for about 2 miles to Union Deposit Road, (Exit 48). From here, follow the "From South" directions below.
From South of Harrisburg:
Take I-83 North to the Union Deposit exit (Exit 48). Turn right from the exit ramp onto Union Deposit Road. Go about 1 mile to Rutherford Road (at a traffic light, with Turkey Hill store on the left). Turn left onto Rutherford Road, and go about 1 mile to Locust Lane (the next traffic light). Turn right onto Locust Lane, then follow the directions "To the Church."
From North, East, or West of Harrisburg:
Take 322 East to I-81 North to I-83 (Exit 70). Take I-83 South for 1/2 mile to the Colonial Park exit (Exit 50A) which is U.S. 22 East. Take U.S. 22 East (Jonestown Road) 8/10 of a mile to Prince Street (the third traffic light). Turn right onto Prince Street and go 7/10 of a mile to Locust Lane (the first traffic light). Turn left onto Locust Lane, then follow the directions "To the Church."
To the Church:
On Locust Lane, travel 6/10 of a mile to the church, which is on the right. Turn at the sign for Locust Lane Dental Group, then immediately bear right again onto the church driveway. Note that the church sits back from the road and is not easily visible from Locust Lane. It is only 2-3 blocks past the ABC North Bowling Lanes.
Note: We usually have signs out on Locust Lane that say "Contra Dance" where you turn to go back to the Church.

HACDA is the successor to the Locust Lane Contra Dance, which was started in 1991 by Joan Bare as a monthly dance series. We now have two dances a month, on the second and fourth Fridays, year-round.
