An outdoor concert series, featuring Gene the Werewolf and Chris Higbee, highlights Penn State New Kensington’s fourth annual Fall Festival that runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29, at the campus.
The concert is one of the many attractions of the festival that is geared to local residents, as well as students and alumni. Activities for the young, old and those in between will be spread out over the newly-renovated campus parking lots. All events are free to the public. Activities include food vendors, crafts, a kids zone and motorcycle run, bed race and alumni tent.
The festival culminates in the early evening with a 5:30 p.m. performance by Gene the Werewolf, a rock and roll band that can be heard on 102.5 WDVE. Fiddler Chris Higbee, formerly of the Povertyneck Hillbillies, takes the stage at 3:30 p.m.
The highlight of the afternoon activities is the Bed Race, featuring five-person teams (four pushers, one rider) who will navigate a bed over a measured course. Alumni, community and student groups are encouraged to enter teams. Beds will be provided. For more information, contact Lauren Blum at 724-334-6063 or email@example.com.
Alumni also will have their time in the sun, or rather in the tent. Dubbed "Alumni Central," the tent will serve as the main venue for the Penn State-Illinois football game on TV and as a social meeting place for alumni and the campus community. Friends of Penn State are welcome to join in the alumni activities. For more about alumni activities, contact Bill Woodard at 724-334-6046 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
