February: The Month of Romance

ARE YOU AN OUTSIDER?

Are you (or do you want to become) an outsider? An outsider is someone who enjoys playing in the outdoors. If you are an outsider, or would like to become one, please join in the fun at the Marilla Winter Trek on Sunday, February 10 from noon-4pm at the Marilla Reservoir. The Marilla Reservoir is located along PA Route 346, five miles west of Bradford, Pennsylvania.

The Marilla Winter Trek is a family-friendly event suitable for all ages. Get outside to enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, skiing or biking the scenic trails of Marilla Watershed. The hike around the Marilla Bridges Trail is a 1-mile loop trail with forest and water vistas, raised walkways, and a picturesque wooden covered bridge.

Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing demonstrations will be offered by Jamestown Cycle Shop. A shuttle will be available to the top of Marilla Springs for those who wish to cross-county ski or hike the 3.6-mile linear trail. An outdoor bonfire and refreshments will be offered at the gazebo along the trail.

This free event is sponsored by the Tuna Valley Trail Association, a group of volunteers who have built over 40 miles of trails. They are a non-profit organization with a mission of building and maintaining trails within the Tuna Valley. Their name includes Tuna in reference to Tunungwant Creek which meanders within the footprint of the trail system.

Trail members will be on-hand to help you learn the trail system … you might just discover a new passion for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing! For sure you will have a chance to meet other trail enthusiasts. For additional information on this event, and for more information on this organization, go to tunavalleytrail.com.

AN EVENING OF GREAT BROADWAY MUSIC

An evening of professional entertainers singing the great music of Broadway is a romantic way to add cheer and excitement to a cold and dreary February evening. Bring your special someone to hear the amazing voices of The Phat Pack on February 22nd at 7:30pm at the Bromeley Family Theater, 300 Campus Drive, Bradford.

The four Phat Pack entertainers met while performing in “Phantom: The Las Vegas Spectacular.” Together they created The Phat Pack, which opened to rave reviews in the fall of 2012 in Las Vegas. Their show headlined for almost a year at The Plaza Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas, followed by a successful run in the Windows Showroom at Bally’s Hotel and Casino, overlooking the Las Vegas Strip.

Singing the music of Broadway, American Standards, along with performing fun original comedy material, these four Broadway performers will share personal stories of their individual journeys in this intimate, funny and entertaining evening of music, laughter and dreams. The Phat Pack tips its hat to an era of elegance during this performance which is a tribute to the entertainment capital of the world - Las Vegas.

Now you can enjoy this performance without traveling to Las Vegas! For additional information phone 814-362-2522. Tickets are $40 per person and may be purchased online at www.bcpac.com.
