"DISCOVERY DAYS" HIGHLIGHTS
Crystal Cave celebrated its 140th Anniversary with a special
"Discovery Days" celebration on Saturday, July 16, 2011.
The event was intended to thank all of the people who
have visited Crystal Cave over the years.
This special event began with a two-hour "live" broadcast at Crystal Cave
hosted by WEEU-AM radio personality Charlie Adams. During the broadcast Pennsylvania State Senator Judy Schwank presented a citation to Crystal Cave in commemoration of the 140th Anniversary of the tourist attraction.
The festivities continued with "special" extended cave tours that included
archival stories and folklore about Crystal Cave from the 1800's, door prizes and drawings for prizes, a Grand Prize for the 140th person who purchased a Crystal Cave admission ticket, a scavenger hunt for rocks from around the world, "old-fashioned" chicken and waffle dinners, birthday cake, and movies taken at Crystal Cave in the 1940's. Kids could also make their own Crystal Cave stalagmite and pan for gemstones.
