Family Fun at the 20th Annual Downtown Fall Fest

This year, the Downtown Improvement District held their 20th Annual Fall Fest. It was on Saturday, October 12th on the 200 Block of South Allen Street from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Did you miss it? Here’s what happened!

Although there was a slight drizzle in the morning, that did not stop families from having a great time. There were over a thousand pumpkins lined up on South Allen Street available for kids to take home on a first come, first serve basis. A few tables were also set up for a pumpkin decorating activity with countless stickers so that the kids could put faces on their pumpkins.

The kids lined up to enjoy pony rides as well as a bouncy house. They were also able to play on the Tumble Bus and the Fun House. Some delicious hot apple cider was available throughout the day and countless other activities were hosted for families to have a fun time. There was also a photo station full of hay bales for people to take some cute family photos.

Fall Fest has been a signature event in State College since 2000. Since then, Downtown State College has seen a significant increase in engagement and positive feedback from local community members. Come join us next year for the 21st Annual Downtown Fall Fest.
