Altoona, Meet your Market: River Prairie hosts new Monday farmers market
Monday Jul. 23rd, 2018Lauren Fisher
The very first Altoona farmers market opened for business Monday, July 23 at River Prairie Park. In an attempt to balance existing markets rather than compete with them, the new weekly event will take place in the evenings from 4-7pm. This will allow shoppers to grab locally grown groceries on the way home from work, just in time for supper. The market is scheduled to run every week through the end of October, with the exception of Labor Day.
Roy Atkinson, management analyst for the City of Altoona, is one of the market's organizers, along with Debra Goldbach, recreation manager. The market idea has been thrown around for some time, according to Atkinson, but the supportive response to the vendor market of the June P10 festival indicated that people were excited about the idea. "It really put a hop in our step to get it going," he said.
"I think it's the perfect space to have a farmer's market," Atkinson said. Organizers expect 8-10 vendors at each market, featuring flowers, vegetables, meat, and bak... Apr 27, 2017

Late holiday offers a boost
Consumers are expected to spend $5.8 billion on food.People in the Altoona area enjoy holiday buffets, said Rachel Lenhart, general manager of the Altoona Grand Hotel.“We have found that people in this area enjoy coming out on Easter to spend time with their family without cooking and cleaning up; it is very convenient,” Lenhart said. “We are changing things up a little bit this year; it is more like a brunch. We will have a create your own omelet station and will also feature carved prime rib.”The buffet will be open from 10:30 a.m.to 2:30 p.m., and reservations are suggested, Lenhart said.“Easter is a huge family celebration day compared to Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.

Going Dutch: Philly Flower Show promises to teach and awe
Pennsylvania Convention Center.“It’s nature on steroids,” said Barbara Hollander, coordinator for the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Altoona, which has booked a charter bus to take a group on March 14. “I feel like art comes in many forms, and there’s certainly nothing more beautiful than nature.”The typically stunning entrance garden will not disappoint this year, said PHS President Matt Rader.“You are going to be completely wowed and inspired,” he said. “You’re going to come in and see a garden with 30,000 bulbs and overhead a suspended flower field with thousands and thousands of floral arrangements.”Other features near the entrance will include bridges, canals and water gardens.“And that really is just the beginning,” Rader continued. “The whole show is wow after wow.”The show will celebrate the Dutch culture, from its vibrant flower fields to its innovative eco-design and environmental sustainability, illustrated most famously with its windmills, one of the earliest uses of natural energy.The Dutch have “really been a great partner” in the show, Rader said, and will give attendees two surprises. One is the introduction of a new tulip that has taken 19 years to develop; the name will be announced at the flower show’s preview party on Friday, but it won’t be on display because of its fragility, he said.The other, the Dutch Ecodome, is making its first trip outside Europe. Award-winning landscape architect Nico Wissing designed it as a showcase for green technologies during a gathering of European Union leaders in 2016 in Amsterdam, according to a flower show pres...

Cops: Women stole cemetery flowers, planned to replant them
Published 7:52 am, Wednesday, March 30, 2016
ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) — Police say two central Pennsylvania women stole cemetery flowers on Easter Sunday because they planned to replant them outside their home.
Logan Township police say they plan to file theft and receiving stolen property charges against a 63-year-old Hollidaysburg woman and her 33-year-old daughter. The Associated Press is not naming the women because the charges had yet to be filed Wednesday.
Logan Township police Chief Tim Mercer says a witness got the license plate of the suspects' car and police went to the women's home and found the flowers.
Police were still trying to determine how many graves had flowers stolen.
The chief says he has "never, never heard of anything like this, especially around a big holiday like Easter."
