BLAIR COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — You can help support local Blair County businesses by grabbing a bite to eat or picking up some things for sale at Lakemont Park today.

“I have been so thankful for the chamber’s support, we’re so glad we can participate in the event tomorrow, and bring some peace, kindness, healing, and fun into that environment,” local business owner of Bloom Yoga and Wellness, Sharon Green said.
The event starts today at 4 pm and runs until 8.
