Harley-Davidson test drives will be one feature of the inaugural Pennsylvania Roundhouse Rally, planned for June 20-23 in Altoona and Hollidaysburg, Blair County. Here, employee motorcycles are parked outside of the Milwaukee headquarters of the iconic American motorcycle builder on June 1.

The Pennsylvania Roundhouse Rally sounds like a gathering of old railroad buffs, but it’s actually a four-day festival for antique and class car buffs, bikers and lovers of food, fireworks and music — which includes just about everyone.

The inaugural rally is planned for June 20-23 in downtown Hollidaysburg, Blair County, and at sites around nearby Altoona, including PNG Park — home of the Altoona Curve baseball team.

The festival’s four days will feature Harley-Davidson and Indian motorcycle test drives, a Wheelie Wizards stunt show, pro wrestling, vendor sales and concerts featuring The Clarks, Jim Donovan and the Sun King Warriors and 90s alt-rockers Sponge and Puddle of Mudd.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
