Learn more about the State College community at this year's LION Bash

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Students and State College community members will come together during this years' Living In One Neighborhood (LION) Bash, to be held from 6 to 10 p.m. on Aug. 29. The community resource fair and block party will have over 50 interactive engagement stations where attendees can learn about local organizations and businesses and win great prizes.

The event will take place on the 100 and 200 blocks of South Allen Street in downtown State College. In addition to engagement stations, there will be food and live entertainment, including Penn State student performers, Miss Melanie and the Valley Rats, The Adorabulls and Velveeta. 

The goal of the LION Bash is to provide an educational opportunity for new Penn State student residents and current State College Borough residents to learn more about the services and ordinances in place, which helps to maintain the quality of life and safety in our shared community. This event is a partnership between Penn State, the Downtown Improvement District, Neighborhood Associations and the Borough of State College. 

The borough has been hosting LION events annually for over ten years. Previously the borough hosted LION Walk, an effort to get students, community members and local leaders out in the community to distribute resource packets to residences’ front doors. Over the past three years, this event has transformed into the LION Bash.
