Happy Holidays in Downtown State College

by on December 20, 2017 12:05 PM

It may be a little quieter with the exodus of Penn State students for winter break, but the holiday season is in full swing and lighting up downtown State College.

This year, as in years past, the festive spirit adorning the downtown does not disappoint. From the lights on Allen Street and in storefronts, to the wreaths along College Avenue, to the Christmas tree at the Allen Gates, holiday cheer is in the air.

With it looking as good as ever, take a virtual walk downtown.
