Great American Banana Split Festival

August 24 - August 26

In 1904, David Evans Strickler, of Tassel Pharmacy in downtown Latrobe, Pa., invented sundaes at the pharmacy’s soda fountain. (Yep,  same Latrobe known for its famous friends and neighbors, golf legend Arnold Palmer and Fred Rogers of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood!) News of his banana-based sundae spread quickly and the recipe was published in 1907. He later purchased the pharmacy and named it after himself.

Celebrate the classic ice cream dish in its birthplace at the The Great American Banana Split Celebration in Latrobe on August 24-26, 2018.

Enjoy games, crafts, and face painting in the Medicine Shoppe Kids Corner on Saturday and Sunday. Bring your appetite or watch the spectacle at the Eat ‘N Park Pie Eating Contest, where contestants will dig in to eat an entire banana cream pie. Don’t want an entire pie? Head to the food court and grab a bite from the wide variety of food trucks. Stroll through the car cruise, and check out the awesome line up of classic cars.

Shop for fresh fruits, vegetables, and other goods at the Farmers’ Market, a new addition this year. Peruse the crafts on Vendor Color Dash Banana Split CelebrationRow, too!

Take part in the 5K Banana Run and receive a free t-shirt. The Color Dash presented by Saint Vincent College, another 5K race, will also be a blast.

MATPRA

Christmas on Main Street held the second weekend of December celebrates Wellsboro, Pennsylvania’s history as "the town that saved Christmas". During World War II when naval blockades prevented export of traditional German ornaments, Shiny Brites created the popular line of "made in the USA" decorations that still grace holiday trees around the world. This celebration offers displays of the classic ornaments as well as food, entertainment and shopping for visitors to enjoy in the small town setting in the heart of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon region! www.VisitPotterTioga.com
