Canal Basin Park

101 Canal Street

Hollidaysburg, PA 16648
Close your eyes and imagine you are back in the 1940's. This was a decade to remember. There were many famous people including Dwight D. Eisenhower, F. D. Roosevelt and Jackie Robinson. Great musicians such as Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday and Aaron Copland. The Frisbee, Plastic and Computers were invented in this decade also. The 1940's were dominated by World War II which sent men off to war and placed women in the work force. Rationing affected the food we ate, the clothes we wore and the toys with which children played.

  Well, now you don't have to Imagine it! Just come to Canal Basin Park in historic Hollidaysburg, PA and LIVE IT!

 We'll have delicious foods to choose from. Live entertainment to laugh or tap your toes to. Antiques to look at and buy. Things for the kiddies to do and most of all, you'll be helping the families of local soldiers being deployed to Iraq this year!

So mark it on your calenders and come on out for a Rip-Roar'in good time and remember to come hungry!
