The Great American Banana Split Celebration

We stopped by Latrobe Pennsylvania for The Great American Banana Split Celebration. The event is an annual festival celebrating the Banana Split that was invented in Latrobe in 1904. There was a lot happening in every direction we walked. There were food trucks, vendors, a variety of fun games, athletic activities plus Musical performances on stage that included a performance by 2018 “American Idol” contestant Aubrey Burchell of Irwin. The real star of the festival of course was the Banana Split and we had to try one of those authentic done right Banana splits from Valley Dairy Restaurants. The banana Split came in a boat with three scoops of ice cream and all of the appropriate toppings making it as we call it a “legit” banana split. It was delicious beyond what words can even describe. The best thing about events like this one is that they bring the community together and bring folks downtown. There is still time to enjoy the event as the Celebration continues today and there is a full schedule of events at I may need another one of those Banana splits. Thanks for watching.
