The City of Harrisburg recognized April 21 as Comcast Cares Day. Comcast employees, their families and friends joined forces to “make change happen” at Reservoir Park, Bethesda Mission Women’s Shelter, Boys and Girls Club, and the LGBT Center of Central PA.
Harrisburg is introducing on March 3 its first annual winter street festival — Ice & Fire! It will be the largest of its kind in the City!
There will be entertainment for everyone including giant inflatables for kids to slide on, a 70-foot ice skating rink in the middle of 2nd Street, fire dancers and MORE.
Did we mention, all of these things are free? Yup, you heard right — free skate rentals, no entry tickets for the bounce house or viewing ice sculptures. EVERYTHING is absolutely free!
In addition, there will be food trucks to fulfill any type of craving, live musical performances and a winter flea market.
Convinced yet? If not, the photos below should do the trick!

It’s a winter wonderland in Harrisburg right now! Everything from the MLK Government Center to Reservoir Park are covered in snow, and it’s a sight to behold!
Simply driving along Front Street makes one want to stop and take photos.
The Peace Garden, Sunken Garden and the bridges over the Susquehanna are especially beautiful with the thick blanket of white this winter has brought.
Don’t forget to take a break, bundle up and step outside to enjoy the beauty this season has to offer!
The Pennsylvania Farm Show is an annual agriculture show hosted at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex here in the City of Harrisburg. It is the largest indoor agriculture exposition featuring about 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 300 commercial exhibits each year. The show provides the opportunity for people to see what Pennsylvania has to offer in the industry.
The Farm Show is usually held in the first or second week of January and lasts about 10 days. And as you will see from the photos, there is plenty to see and do. From petting farm animals to competitions to delicious food and famous milkshakes, there’s something for everyone!
In addition, this year, our very own Mayor Papenfuse participated in the “Fill a Glass with Hope” campaign hosted by the PA Dairymen’s Association by serving milkshakes. For every milkshake purchased, a dollar was donated to the cause.
