Friday in the ‘Fonte: June 26, 2020

Posted on

The last Friday of each month, celebrate downtown Bellefonte’s shopping, dining, arts and craft beverages during Friday in the ‘Fonte!

This month, dine outside in Bellefonte during Friday in the ‘Fonte

As part of our monthly Friday in the ‘Fonte celebration, additional tables and chairs will be placed in front of the Centre County Courthouse (Allegheny Street) and along Bellefonte’s Waterfront Walkway. Access the Waterfront Walkway from either West High or Lamb streets. Enjoy takeout from your favorite Bellefonte restaurant while dining outside and enjoying our picturesque town, the view amplified by the surrounding backdrop of mountains.

Dining tables will be wiped down hourly, and sanitizing solution will be available for your convenience. Tables will be placed to allow social distancing while eating and walking through the area.

Tables will be available for use between 5 and 9:30 p.m.

This initiative was made possible in part by Historic Bellefonte Inc., the Bellefonte YMCA and Watermarke Church, who have made donations of chairs and tables.

Don’t forget: Many businesses stay open during Friday in the ‘Fonte for extended shopping hours! Before of after you’ve had a bite, take a stroll through the downtown to visit our wide variety of shops.
