The Best of Penn State Carnival is one of the largest events that Homecoming puts on throughout the Homecoming year. It is a huge celebration on Old Main lawn that will engage all members of the student body, alumni, and community of State College. There will be many different activities for people to participate in such as carnival games and inflatables. Not to mention there will be various performances from different Penn State organizations, and a DJ to provide entertainment. We will also be offering various carnival foods such as popcorn, sno-cones, and cotton candy, all free of charge. While the carnival is taking place, there will also be bell tower tours provided by the Lion Ambassadors so that people can get a chance to see the top of Old Main and look down at the campus.
