Happy Fourth of July
The Central PA 4thFest fireworks show has been rated one of the top three fireworks
shows in the United States! The show will light up the sky, but other events will light up faces around Beaver Stadium until the 9:15 show. Whether you are coming from out of town or just up the road,
be sure to check out our Fourth of July Guide to find all the other events happening around the area
during the July 4th weekend. (Community Calendar)
Just as the Fourth of July crowds leave, new crowds will be arriving. Aside from Penn State home football games, no other single event brings
as much excitement and energy to the State College area as the Central
Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts. The 44th Arts Festival returns July
8-11 (Children and Youth Day July 7) and, like always, promises great
art and entertainment, a variety of good food, and plenty of fun. Look for the StateCollege.com Arts Festival Guide coming next week!
