Childhood favorite make and takes, interactive music, coffee and strolls down memory lane highlight November’s edition of Art Walk Huntingdon!
The third installment of Art Walk Huntingdon will take place on Thursday, November 17, 2016 during the hours of 5:00-8:00 PM. Art Walk Huntingdon is a monthly event taking place on the third Thursday of every month throughout the Borough of Huntingdon from Juniata College campus to the historic downtown area.
The event is an open house format with no defined start or end point. “We encourage people to gather a group of friends and start at a spot that piques their interests, then bounce around town to experience as many places and events as they can,” said Huntingdon Landmarks chairman Matt Price, adding, “Don’t worry if you can’t make it everywhere…there is always next month!” All participating businesses have map brochures to help with navigating the venues.
