Summer Fun Is Waiting for You at Tussey Mountain
Tussey Mountain has nailed down how to do year-round fun. With the snow long gone, their slopes become a backdrop for a summer’s worth of FUN. Check out what’s planned!
WingFest: Every Thursday night through August 17
For 18 years, WingFest has been drawing thousands of hungry Central Pennsylvania residents and restaurants offering the best wings in Happy Valley competing for the title of Tussey Mountain Wing King. Every Thursday night through the Finals on August 17, you’ll get your chance to vote for the best wings in the area and to see if your favorite wings can take the Wing King crown from 2016 champion The Wilderness Lodge.
It's not just about the wings — there is also some of the best live music, with local and nationally touring acts playing each night of the competition throughout the summer. There are choices beyond wings — BBQ, pierogies and lots of other great food will be on site each week. Visit tusseymountain.com/wingfest for more information.
Movies on the Mountain
Just like last year, this event is FREE, and you can buy movie popcorn, hot dogs, ice cream, beer and more while you enjoy a fun flick outside! Gates open at 8 p.m., movies start at dusk. Check social media before you head out, due to weather!
July and August movies are:
- Lego Batman on July 21
- Ghost on August 4
- Mary Poppins on August 18
- Beauty and the Beast on September 8
- Kong: Skull Island on September 22
Bring your family and friends for these activities that will bring out the kid in everyone. With Go-Karts, golfing, batting cages, a (renovated!) skate park and the Mountain Mini-Golf Course, Tussey Mountain has something for everyone to enjoy throughout the hot Central Pennsylvania summer.
