Mohegan Pennsylvania to Host Summer Fun Kickoff Party

On Saturday, July 1st, Mohegan Pennsylvania is celebrating the start of their annual Hot Summer Fun with a Kickoff Party. This family-friendly event is full of activities while spotlighting local charities and a salute to veterans.

Hot Summer Fun is upon us at Mohegan Pennsylvania, and the Summer Kickoff Party is one guests won’t want to miss. Guests of all ages can gather at the Racetrack for a day of activities including face painting, balloon art, and more. Those looking for a quick bite can enjoy freshly grilled hot dogs and hamburgers and grab a sweet treat from Jitty Joe’s Homemade Ice Cream truck. An array of beverages will be available for purchase, along with a complimentary, limited-edition, color changing cup.

To get things started, the FBS Initiative, an organization dedicated to helping homeless veterans off the street and on their feet, will do a special presentation of the colors during the National Anthem at 12:30pm. Veteran organizations Amvets and the PA Wounded Warriors will also be on hand to provide support to past and present military members, along with their families. Additional charities at the Summer Kickoff include Marley’s Mission, a local non-profit organization that provides free, equine-based therapy to help children develop solutions in their own lives and break barriers in their own healing.

At 1:00pm, guests can enjoy some high energy live harness racing on the Racetrack with a unique twist during the two intermissions. Between races, ostriches and camels with drivers will take over the Racetrack for an exhilarating dash to the finish line!
