Coming up on the beginning of the holiday season, our town kicks things off with the annual “It’s a Wonderful Night In Indiana, PA” light up festival–there will be a parade, the mayor will wave from his car, and the marching band playing Christmas songs; next up is a bonfire, hot cocoa and all sorts of fun stuff for the brats–er–kids. Oh, and Santa’s coming, too. In honor of all that, and because I don’t feel like writing anything more thoughtful, here’s a few more things about the town I call home.
The New York Times likes our museum.
Really Famous People Were Born Here…like Edward Abbey
And This Guy, Too. He would never have let the government shut down.
Our Football Team Rocks…and Not Just Because They Usually Win
The Basketball Team is Even BETTER
We even pimp our “wonderful life” on the official town website!
We have our own university, but it’s name confuses people.
It’s a pretty university, too.
The IUP Journalism department has a blog. Unlike this one, it’s good.
It’s a pretty cool place to live–something this prodigal son never thought he’d say.
You’d be hard put to find a better sandwich.
But we still need someone to open a decent micro-brewery.
