Things to do in Harrisburg PA

Doggies, doggies, doggies! This weekend at the PA Farm Show complex - "PawsAbilities" is celebrating 15 years of benefiting Susquehanna Service Dogs. This event includes demonstrations of K-9 police units, dog Olympic games, 'clicker' training, and the cutest dog contest. Our guests checking in tonight brought their Beagle/Dachshund mix, "Angel". They will be going to PawsAbilities to see the events and vendors and so that "Angel" can play with other doggies!

The biggest home show in the east continues through the weekend at the Farm Show Complex. If you're looking for the latest solar technology, a great hot tub, landscaping ideas, or if you want to see the latest construction project by a local vocational technical school, visit the PA Home Show!

Pennsylvania is celebrating its 330th birthday! PA Charter Day is a free event on Sunday, March 13, from noon to 4 PM. You can greet William Penn as portrayed by William Kushatus, meet Pennsylvania's 2010 National History Day Winners or take in a lecture on the history of the state's forests. Visitors can also learn about Victorian life with the Victorian Dance Ensemble and hear tales of bygone days as Pennsylvania Jack tells stories full of characters from the Keystone State. Come celebrate PA history with us!

We still have two rooms available for Saturday night so come to Carlisle this weekend and explore our area!
