Harrisburg serves as the capital of Pennsylvania. The city lies along the shores of the Susquehanna River, and despite its relatively meager population, still offers a plethora of attractions to its residents and passersby. For basking in outdoor fun, the Riverfront Park and City Island provides an environment for families to bask in the beauty of the capital alongside the Susquehanna. The park also hosts the Kipona Celebration, one of the oldest inland festivals that deliver wholesome fun, arts and crafts, a puppet theater, and Pennsylvania's famous Chili Cook-off. Other summertime festivities include outdoor summer concerts along the riverfront. For a more historic sort of experience, there are many museums and historic sites that do just that. The John Harris Mansion showcases folk art and artistry from past residents. The State Museum of Pennsylvania offers three floors of archaeology, history, art, and even a planetarium.1
