[Photo Story] State College LION Bash 2021

On Thursday evening, State College held its annual LION (Living In One Neighborhood) Bash downtown. The annual festival brings together dozens of organizations, clubs, and services to highlight all of what the borough has to offer.

The event took place between the 100 to 300 blocks of South Allen Street and included countless “Engagement Stations” operated by individual organizations.

Companies, clubs, and community members set up booths that included free merch as well as information about their respective causes.

The State College Police Department and Alpha Fire Company were also at the event to get in on the fun.

There were several musicians lining the streets filling the block with music.

The balloon artist and caricature drawings were a huge success with lines down the street.

The THON booth also attracted a large crowd promoting the 46-hour dance marathon. Members were also selling hats, t-shirts, and sweatshirts to benefit this year’s fundraiser.

This year’s LION Bash really had something for everyone…even for those who are having a hard time adjusting to in-person learning and sitting at desks again.
