Free, Family-Oriented Indoor Carnival Event Returns For Seventh Year

STATE COLLEGE- The State College Spikes annual free, family-oriented winter carnival event known as "SpikesFest" will be held on Sunday, February 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Penn State Indoor Multi-Sport Facility, located adjacent to the Bryce Jordan Center. Parking and admission are FREE. SpikesFest 2013 is presented in part by 95.3 FM 3WZ and WTAJ, Your News Leader.

Now in its seventh year as the State College area's premier winter family activity, SpikesFest is a giant indoor baseball carnival designed to simulate the experience of fun ballpark activities during the heart of Winter. The event will feature free autograph sessions, inflatable games, kids activities, video games, mascot appearances, performances by local entertainment groups, unique experiences, door prizes, ticket specials, and much more. Specific appearances and program details will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Spikes will also once again hold a silent auction of sports memorabilia and entertainment experiences with all proceeds to benefit Coaches vs. Cancer. Over the first six SpikesFest events, the club has helped to raise several thousand dollars for Coaches vs. Cancer, a nation-wide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).
