At Muddy Rose Pottery, the staff strives to highlight the therapeutic nature of hand-thrown pottery. Though the studio is open to artists of all ages and abilities, the instructors focus most of their energy on intellectually and developmentally disabled students, who use the pottery wheel to create works of art and develop self-esteem and confidence. The studio welcomes all visitors to try their hand at the wheel during a variety of classes, which range from simple one-hour sessions to longer, more advanced 10-hour courses spread out over several weeks.

Under the bright lights at PPMS, rogue speedsters zoom around a half-mile clay racetrack in careening caravans of super and semi late models, E-mods, cadets, and young guns. Spectators unsated after tailgating in PPMS's free lot can fuel up with a monster meal that includes Pizza Hut pizza, a burger, chicken, or a hot dog, cotton candy, a drink, and a side such as pretzels. Scoop up some swag in the Speedway gift shop with a $3 gift certificate, and bedeck your ride with a checkered racing flag or a hood ornament of life-size echidna. Racing fans under age 7 get in free.

Dependable Drive-In has emblazoned its four outdoor screens with the latest blockbusters for more than 61 years, piquing the admiration of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporters. Customers can park their cars, vans, or mule-drawn carriages in the drive-in's enormous lot, where they can watch back-to-back double features whilst snuggled within their vehicle's cozy interior. As celebrity-saturated images illuminate the night, audience members can feast on popcorn and soft drinks from one of the three concession stands. A schedule of features including Happy Feet Two can entertain youthful spectators, and uproarious comedies such as Jack and Jill can amuse adults and fill the night air with sounds of hearty guffaws and nose-snorted sodas.

Hershey Theatre

The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.

Under the sprawling roof of First Niagara Pavilion, music greats such as Billy Joel, Rush, and Jimmy Buffett have all taken over the stage as fans throughout the amphitheater space watch, transfixed. Whether enjoying the show from the open-air pavilion or the verdant lawn, concertgoers demonstrate their love for the performers by dancing along to the music or holding up lighters engraved with the lead singer’s astrological sign.
