Much more than a sale

Long before I moved here for this great job, we made sure to come to Happy Valley for all of the big events and games.

One of them always was the downtown State College sale, on the last weekend of June.

My mother enjoyed scooping up bargains from the stores she visited on many other weekends, and we all liked to get away.

It was always a nice event, but it's worth noting today how it's grown. Summer's Best Music Fest is about to burst on the scene tomorrow, with so much more than shopping.

We offered a Views page thumbs up today to organizers and participants in this great event, and I have to agree that it's like an arts festival preview for locals.

Worth a trip to Happy Valley if you're reading this from miles away.
