Clear Skies for Arts Fest 2007
The fourtieth annual Blair County Arts Festival, sponsored by the Blair County Arts Foundation, was hosted May 18-20 by Penn State Altoona. The traditional Children's Day was held on Friday with uncharacteristically dry weather and many area elementary school students in attendance. The festival opened to blue skies and large crowds on Saturday, featuring craft booths, bands, dance performances, and food. A new festival feature, a Penn State Altoona faculty poetry reading entitled "Generations of Poetry," was held on Saturday.
