About an hour’s drive from Pittsburgh, Latrobe is best known for being the hometown of one of its favorite former citizens: Fred Rogers. It’s also a charming town in its own right, with plenty of neighborly feels for anyone local or tourist alike.
Every year, they hold Holly Jolly Christmas, a weeklong celebration that kicks off on Saturday, Dec. 2, with Santa’s Party in the Park, a holiday market, holiday crafts at Latrobe Art Center, storytime at Adams Memorial Libray, and more. There are plenty of local eats and charming goods for purchase. While you’re at it, you can explore the Fred Rogers Trail to learn more about the legacy around Latrobe and Pittsburgh.
