Children’s Day at Arts Fest

The Arts Festival proper starts tomorrow, but there’s still plenty happening downtown today for Children’s Day. While you might not fit the intended demographic, there are still a couple of things worth checking out.

Running from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. is the Children and Youth Day Sidewalk Sale on South Allen Street. Children ages eight to 18 will be selling everything from cork guns to some rather impressive pottery. While the average quality and craftsmanship may pale in comparison to the professional vendors selling the rest of the week, the prices are also much lower in comparison. You might be surprised what you find.

At the same time, there will be different stations set up across downtown and campus with everything from Shaver’s Creek’s birds of prey to hands-on chemistry demonstrations. It’s a good opportunity to forget about the stress of classes and internships, and embrace your inner child.

Also, there will be kids everywhere downtown, so keep that in mind when making life decisions today.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day. Located at 215 Colonnade Blvd., there are few surprises at the chain’s new location. With rows of rocking chairs out front, checker boards and a game of peg solitaire at every table, I could have been at any franchise location in the country — not that that’s a bad thing.
