Everything you missed at Pop Up Ave

For the hippy dippies and lovers of fun, quirky finds

This past weekend was the kickoff to what will (hopefully) become a tradition here in Happy Valley: Pop Up Ave. If you don’t already know what this amazing event is, we’re here to fill you in so you don’t miss it next time.

Taking place in the parking lot next to Chipotle in front of Beaver Hill, Pop Up Ave featured all things hippy dippy and amazing. Think urban flea market comes to Penn State.

Honestly, the only issue was the lack of food and drink vendors. Webster’s was there, but what about some more unique, hard to find places with cool drinks you’d never think of? Worst case scenario, though, you walk to the edge of the parking lot and go to Chipotle, Starbucks or another nearby place, so still, not bad.

If you missed out, don’t worry: we’ve got you covered on everything it had to offer.

Live, local music
