For a few weeks every year, Philipsburg in Centre County is home to the tallest Santa display in Pennsylvania!
Standing 37.5 feet tall, with a bag of toys nearly 20 feet tall, Santa has occupied this spot at Cold Stream Park in Philipsburg every December since 2005.
The giant Santa was created in the 1960s by local artist Bill Adams, and stood at various spots around Philipsburg over the years.
Santa is made out of plywood and is flanked by 6 life-size toy soldiers.
Cold Stream Dam and park is located right along Route 322 in Philipsburg, and you can park within a few yards of the Santa display.
So if you’re looking to add another “Christmassy” item to your PA Bucket List, make sure to visit the tallest Santa in Pennsylvania this December in Philipsburg!
The Jimmy Stewart Museum in Indiana, PA is yet another fantastic place to visit at Christmas time.
Despite the fact that he appeared in over 70 motion pictures, Stewart is perhaps best known for his role as George Bailey in the Christmas classic “It’s a Wonderful Life”.
The Jimmy Stewart Museum in his hometown of Indiana showcases memorabilia from all phases of his life and career, and does so in a very relaxed, informative, and enjoyable atmosphere.
