Pennsylvania State Laurel Festival
Every June, the town of Wellsboro holds festivities to celebrate the state flower, the mountain laurel. The community gathers for a parade showcasing a variety of community businesses, students, musicians, and emergency personnel. After browsing a variety of arts and craft vendors, among other activities, the festival closes with the Queens pageant Saturday night. Originally created in 1938, this small town tradition has grown to become a summer favorite for both tourists and local attendees.
