    - Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer.

  • | 7:00pm - | Sports and Recreation, races, run, YMCA
    - The all-new Harrisburg Marathon will take you on a thrilling journey through beautiful Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Our fast, flat, newly-designed course is a Boston qualifier that’s sure to give plenty of runners a great PR!

    We’ve completely reimagined the Harrisburg Marathon event in 2015. We envision our Marathon as a “mini-Boston” — Second Street lined with people cheering, music playing, the energy of what has been dubbed “Restaurant Row” electrified as runners of our completely redesigned course round their way onto Second Street towards the new finish line at Locust.

    We completely redesigned our Marathon course so we could better integrate the city into it. We’ve added new sections that showcase some of Harrisburg’s landmarks like Fort Hunter. We’ve introduced two scenic bridge crossings to integrate our friends on the west shore of the Susquehanna. The crescendo of the new Marathon though, was to move the final mile and finish line right down Second Street to Locust Street —the epicenter of the downtown scene.
    Not running? Come to the Downtown Marathon Red Block Party!

    Don’t miss the first ever Marathon Red Block Party! We redesigned the Harrisburg Marathon course to integrate the event with the community that hosts it. Celebrate our “mini-Boston” and cheer on finishers in a huge downtown celebration!

  • - Yes. A free show. Harrisburg Shakespeare Festival was officially founded on March 1, 1994 by J. Clark Nicholson, Melissa H. Nicholson and Thomas A. Hensel. The City of Harrisburg was seeking ideas for performing arts events at Reservoir Park when Clark and Melissa suggested using the bandshell to produce outdoor Shakespeare. The City liked the idea and the Harrisburg Shakespeare Festival was born.

    The main goal of HSF is to continue to produce free Shakespeare in Reservoir Park each year. Why? HSF believes that the works of William Shakespeare were written to be performed outdoors for a diverse audience and would like everyone to be able to enjoy and appreciate these great works, regardless of income or background. What better location than Reservoir Park and how better to reach a diverse audience than with free shows!
