Community Spotlight

Something Different To Do

One of the great things about living in State College, is there is always something 'different' to do around town for you and your family.  For instance, next weekend you could check out the PSU Rube Goldberg Machine Contest, (Rube Goldberg, a complicated invention, laboriously contrived to perform a simple operation) This year’s national challenge: design and build a machine that waters a plant in 20 or more steps. Other finds in our calendar include listening to  visiting Buddhist Monks, watching people Tango (Tango Buenos Aires), joining a women's pick-up game of hockey or catching an advance screening of a new movie for free (Paul).

Remember: You can always find what is going on by visiting our Community Calendar.  Post your event today, it's FREE!
