@KatieCyborg and WITF does 3rd In The Burg (#3rdintheburg)


Hey all, I wanted to let you know that there’s something that’s going on in the Harrisburg area called the 3rd In The Burg.

Instead of First Friday like several other cities in the area has (Lancaster, York, etc), Harrisburg has decided to do 3rd In The Burg.

From WITF Creative Zone:

Enter three local business owners: Christina Heintzelman-Jones, owner of Gallery Blu; Susan Schreckengaust, owner of Arts at 510; and Eric Papenfuse, owner of The Midtown Scholar Bookstore. These individuals saw a need for a monthly arts event, and with a little imagination, organized3rd in the Burg, Harrisburg’s answer to “First Friday.” 3rd in the Burg happens every third Friday of the month, which is a unique way to remember this arts event, as well as make it stand out from other more established First Fridays. From 2nd to North 3rd Streets in Harrisburg, shops and galleries participate from 5-9pm, hosting bands, lectures, films, or craft demos. Since its inception in September 2009, 3rd in the Burg has grown in size, with a number of galleries popping up and shops remaining open after hours.

Now, here’s where the local Twitter Celebrity comes into play.  One of my Twitter friends (@katiecyborg) did an audio piece on 3rd In The Burg.  You should really take the 10 minutes and listen to it as it goes into a little more detail than just the text of the page and gives it a more personal touch.  I’ve met a few of the people that are mentioned both in the text and in the audio piece and can say without a shadow of a doubt tat they’re all great people.  I also got a chance to visit The Hodge Podgery and will be doing a separate post as it definitely deserves it.

It’s a very well done piece and I want to congratulate Katie on her Celebrity status.  🙂  At least among the locals if not far and wide.

Katie works for WITF and does volunteer work for their Creative Zone.
