The parade route will travel through downtown State College, across the PSU campus and end at the Bryce Jordan Center. Then enjoy an afternoon and evening of live music and performances and take in the sights, sounds, and flavors of the carnival midway and tasty fair food. Don’t miss the Towne Square, and activities and entertainment for children and teens.
