Still Life: Food, fun and fireworks at FourthFest

July 06, 2004

More than 75,000 people are estimated to have attended Fourth of July festivities at the Central Pennsylvania Fourth Fest (FourthFest), held on the Penn State University Park campus on July 4. A variety of activities kept kids busy at an indoor playground at The Bryce Jordan Center, while outside, musicians, crafts, pyrotechnics demonstrators, a 14-foot American flag cake, animals from the Shaver's Creek Environmental Center and other entertainment warmed up the crowd for the nationally-acclaimed FourthFest fireworks, which went off after a short rain delay.
