What will Hostess Twinkies look like 25 years after burial? Will a Timex watch really have kept on ticking?

Georgetown Square will answer those questions and more when it digs up and opens the time capsule buried on the grounds of the northeast-side shopping center at State Boulevard and Maplecrest Road. The opening will take place at 3 p.m. June 22.

The shopping center is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, but the time capsule was buried in 1993 as part of its 25th anniversary festivities, a news release said.

Along with the Twinkies from the former Rogers Markets grocery there and the watch from Will Jewelers, which once operated a store there, items placed in the time capsule when it was buried reportedly include:

· Fine Bottle of French Wine: Cap n’ Cork

· Letters predicting the future 2018: Haley Elementary students

· Black Lace Bra Size 46DDE: Fashions at Large

Other activities June 22 include music from Brent Cooper’s Tribute to Elvis and Neil Diamond, 4-6 p.m., and oldies rock by The Bulldogs, 6:30-8:30 p.m. People also can enjoy giveaways and food.
