Street Love Tour 2011: An Alternate State Patty’s
Looking for something to do Saturday that does not involve staying inside all day or being a State Patty’s Day asshole? Alliance Christian Fellowship, Campus Crusade For Christ, and Navigators are teaming up for the first ever Street Love Tour.
The event, beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday, is modeled after a house crawl, minus the alcohol. The Around-The-World-themed tour kicks off at 120 West Fairmount Avenue and will continue on to stops on Allen Street, Atherton Street, Burrowes Street, and Park Avenue.
Each location will be geared toward a certain country, and plenty of music, food, and drinks (non-alcoholic, of course) will be provided.
Those wishing to participate must purchase a t-shirt for $9. Proceeds from purchases go toward Penn State CRU’s spring break trip, Heart for Haiti. T-shirts can be picked up at the HUB or Old State Clothing Company. Students can also order shirts from Street Love Tour’s website.
“It’s not anti-State Patty’s Day,” CRU member Jon Tornetta told The Collegian. “What this is about is, if you want to celebrate in a safe environment, you can come to this event and participate. Some may be turned off because we won’t have alcohol, but we think it will be a great event.”
