Exhibitors and visitors from all corners of the mid-Atlantic are traveling to Harrisburg to experience the largest indoor agricultural event in the United States, the Pennsylvania Farm Show, for its 102nd year.

More than 10,000 competitive exhibits and nearly 300 commercial exhibitors are on display within the 24-acre spread throughout the complex’s 11 halls and three arenas.

The free event runs Jan. 6 through 13, at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center, located at 2300 N. Cameron St. Attendees can be shuttled to the complex in busses from two nearby lots. The cost for parking is $15 per vehicle.

Next week, the Record Express will run a list of all Lititz and Manheim residents who received blue ribbons at the event, along with photos.
