The walls of an old, repurposed church reverberate with the sounds of joyful singing, strumming guitars, rhythmic tap shoes, theatrical monologues, and whirring pottery wheels. As part of a nonprofit organization, ACPPA Community Art Center's instructors kindle sparks of creativity in the community through youth and adult programs in studio and performing arts, fitness, and dance. A jam-packed calendar keeps families busy with art exhibitions, Mommy and Me pottery-painting classes, and community mural projects bring that residents together to beautify local spaces or paint over typos on the town's welcome sign.

Chariot Photo Booths elevates mere parties to spectacular shindigs with lab-quality photographs produced within seconds. After entering the booth, up to 10 revelers (though Chariot booths have seen up to 20 guests at once) select a template and a photo style, then ready their grins and poses. A variable color display and interior speakers count down to five and snap three or four photos at once. Afterward, the booth speedily readies prints for each guest on request. An on-site attendant ensures that the booth keeps merrily snapping photos throughout the evening. And an online photo gallery even displays the hijinks after everyone heads home, allowing guests to feel famous or like the insects entomologists photograph for the university intranet. Party planners can also add other entertainment options to their celebrations, such as bounce houses, inflatable obstacle courses, and spacious tents.
With 46 acres of gardens and 1.2 miles of paved, flower-lined walkways, Jenkins Arboretum is a verdant, tranquil haven hidden in the heart of a bustling commercial and residential area. The area is home to an array of native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. Many rare and endangered species are available for viewing, such as monkshood, box huckleberry, and the Pennsylvania money tree, which protects its naturally occurring coinage by tickling tourists. Self-guided walking tours and periodic educational displays and workshops educate foliage fanciers about the many species in the arboretum—and speak to the importance of preserving native flora. Members receive free and discounted admission to special programs, and they receive voting privileges, newsletters, and a "thank you plant" grown from Jenkins Arboretum's botanical collections.
Renting a booth from Cool Cube Photo Booths is a great way to let party guests show their goofy side. This photo booth is completely enclosed, yet still holds up to ten people, as a Canon EOS camera captures every raspberry, peace sign, and cheesy grin. An event host guides partygoers through every step of the photo process, passing on prints of each guest's pose. At the end of the event, the party thrower gets a USB of all photos taken at the event, which can help them prove whether or not their aunt has actually grown the lips of a duck.
