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.

Although the course itself is reason enough to strap on running shoes, at Cooking Light & Health's Fit Foodie 5K, racers are motivated by finish-line prizes that make medals pale in comparison. The race is kicked off by award-winning actress, author, and host Alison Sweeney, who will also sign copies of her new book Scared Scriptless. The route weaves through picturesque Austin, Texas, where sterling views reward stretched muscles as runners charge across 5-kilometer course. Upon reaching the finishing line, racers head to the Finisher's Village. Here, they can indulge in food tastings, a beer sample, and cooking and fitness demonstrations courtesy of the Love TX Chefs Experience.
