• Kent's Fest brings fun to students during annual event

    kentfestJungle, safari, rainforest – Kent’s Fest had it all during the 18th annual event held at Lock Haven University. This year’s theme was “jungle safari” and included participants from schools around the commonwealth, including those from Bellefonte Area School District.

    Kent’s Fest is a Special Olympic-type event for the performing arts, and named in memory of Kent Glossner, an LHU alumnus who had a passion for music and helping those with disabilities.

    Bellefonte Area students from classes at Bellefonte Area middle and high schools and Bellefonte and Pleasant Gap elementary schools performed to songs such as “Down in the Jungle,” “Hey Hey we are the Monkeys,” “Elephant March” and “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”

    The high school’s life skills students received the award for Best Audience Engagement.
