An annual Fourth of July Festival with lots of entertainment for all ages, music, storytelling, children activities and crafts including a parade in the afternoon. There are plenty of food vendors and the best is saved for last. A fantastic display of fireworks choreographed and perfectly synchronized to music. The annual Firecracker 4K and 4Mile races provide the perfect start to our day long Central PA 4thFest celebration. The Parade of Heroes is beginning in front of the State College Municipal Building at 2:00pm. The parade route will travel through downtown State College, across the PSU campus and end at the Bryce Jordan Center. The all volunteer pyrotechnics team has created what promises to be another fabulous show for 2017. Remember the fireworks show is choreographed to music which is played on 93.7 The Bus. This year’s medley includes many traditional patriotic songs, movie, TV, and show tunes, as well as popular selections. Songs will be played by big bands, jazz bands, rock bands, military bands, and don’t forget the choirs and orchestras.
