An avid music junkie in Lancaster would have no problem getting his daily fix of tunes, thanks to the prominent local music scene.
Whether it’s attending a show at one of the many local venues, or learning about the next up-and-coming bands through social media, central Pennsylvania and, more specifically, Lancaster, has grown into a hub for musicians looking to break through to the next level.
This week, promoter Jeremy Weiss and CIRecords will look to showcase some of the most promising young artists at the fourth annual 7-1-7 Fest.
The event, from 3 to 10 p.m. Thursday, will feature 15 area bands on multiple stages at the Lancaster County Convention Center.
Reading, PA – You won’t want to miss the big-time addition to this year’s Holiday Parade in downtown Reading on Saturday. And when we say big, we mean big!
Snowflakes the Snowman will be the first-ever huge helium balloon to hover along the parade route. Measuring 50 feet high and 22 feet wide, Snowflakes will be holding a large bright-blue snow star in his right glove as he makes his way down Penn Street on Saturday morning.
The annual parade will start at 9 a.m. at 11th Street and proceed down Penn Street to Second Street. Free parking will be available at all Reading Parking Authority garages except the Poplar and Walnut garage.
In addition to the debut of Snowflakes, a second, smaller helium balloon in the shape of an antique ornament will be part of the procession, according to Charles R. “Chuck” Broad, executive director of the Downtown Improvement District, which is coordinating the parade.
The annual Pottstown Halloween Parade will be held on Wednesday, October 24th at 7:00pm in downtown Pottstown.
It’s a work in progress for owner Kevin Rhude, who would like to turn the 100-year-old State Theatre of Boyertown into a theater of the arts.
At 61 N. Reading Ave., the theater shows three to four movies a week at 4:30 and 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays in addition to a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturdays and Sundays.
But Rhude of Boyertown wants the theater to go beyond film and be a venue for arts of all kinds.
Rhude purchased the State Theatre in 2008. Having worked in real estate for more than 20 years, Rhude said he has an appreciation for old buildings and art.
