State College Central Pennsylvania 4th Fest
Central PA 4th Fest returns! Announces this year's show will be the largest fireworks display in Pennsylvania.
After three years. The Central PA 4thFest is elated to announce a full day of family friendly activities and events, and what will officially be the largest fireworks display in Pennsylvania.
Back are the popular Firecracker 4K run and walk, the Independence Day Parade, live music, community activities, and an amazing fireworks display with several different options for prime viewing.
"We are so excited to once again present the 4th Fest celebration in a manner that residents of our community and visitors remember prior to the pandemic" said Central PA 4th Fest new Executive Director Celesta Powell. Powell accepted the daunting task of the 4th Fest in September of this year. "What is not to love about coordinating a one day birthday party?" She jokes when asked about her role.
Powell noted in 2020, the Central PA 4th Fest operated at four satellite locations throughout Centre County, and in 2021 and 2022, as smaller gatherings due to continued restrictions on large recommendations. This community has had a 4th celebration since 1927 and we were committed to continuing that tradition in whatever way we could. With that being said, we are so happy to see the 4th Fest resemble what we have come to love on July 4,"
Scott Walker, the Central PA 4th Fest fundraising committee chair reports that tickets will be available for presale on April 4. "We wanted to keep the 4th as a common theme. We have 4 person packages available on the 4th, for the 4th." While details of musical acts and events are still being finalized, both Walker and Powell emphasize to watch their social media sites as well as their websites for all updates.
"This event is not a one person show. It is only possible with our community's support and partnerships. We are honored to partner with The Pennsylvania State University, community volunteers, and our generous sponsoring organizations, as well as the State College Spikes organization. I would also like to highlight the volunteer board of directors and committee, their dedication to this event is undaunted. The Central PA 4th Fest is only as successful as the community allows us to be, and I am convinced that our powerful community will bring forth an outstanding day for everyone.
Powell says the Central PA 4th Fest welcomes volunteers, parade registrations, and sponsorship opportunities. She says you can email her or complete an application on line. "Please reach out- we need you. I can find something for anyone interested in being a part of this feel good event. We want to see everyone out here with us. We can't wait for the 4th and are determined to offer a show that you won't want to miss!"
Central PA 4th Fest 2023 is in the making!
