Bellefonte Under the Lights supports the local food industry
CENTRAL COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) – Bellefonte waterfront transforms for annual community meeting “Bellefonte under the lights”. This is an award-winning progressive style dinner featuring local food and drink vendors.
“Bellefonte is booming, we’ve seen a lot of really great growth and a lot of fun things have happened over the last few years,” said Melissa Hombosky, President of Bellefonte Under the Lights. “We’re really excited to show what our downtown restaurants and liquor suppliers can do with what they have. ”
The event takes place on Friday September 3 and Saturday September 4 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Hombosky said it is a framework that allows new and long-term residents to connect.
“We are just very fortunate to have the opportunity to bring all of these people together in a beautiful setting,” Hombosky said.
The profits of the event go to the local vendors. In 2019, organizers say they returned around $ 20,000 to the community.
A $ 50 ticket includes a choice of appetizer, main course, dessert, and car ride with the option to add additional items once during the event.
New this year, $ 100 VIP tickets allow guests to attend a Happy Hour (drink, aperitif) at the newly reopened Gamble Mill. In addition, they will have their first access to Bellefonte Under the Lights at 5 p.m. and will win an event t-shirt.
