Bloomsburg Homes for Sale
It might be tempting to see a “college town” solely as a community that exists to support the great and dominating machine of the university. However, it is probably fairer to say that the intellectual energy necessary to nurture a thriving university exists in Bloomsburg, and that the college exists in the town; the town does not exist because of the university. Certainly, a cultural vitality drives the downtown area and surrounding community. Even when college students are not filling the sidewalks downtown, local organizations are still hosting poetry readings, political meetings, professional theater productions, gymnastic lessons, art shows and events for the Bloomsburg High School. Of course university students tend to drive the night scene in Bloomsburg. However, local breweries and eateries feature a variety of fare that can appeal to the young as well as the more sophisticated diner. Annual events include The Renaissance festival, the Veteran’s day parade, 4th of July fireworks, 5K’s, music in the park, and of course the unparalleled Bloomsburg Fair. Obviously other cultural and sporting events are available to the community through Bloomsburg University, the Children’s Museum, and the local YMCA.
