Brown to host bus trip to PA Farm Show on Jan. 13

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 18 – State Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown, D-Phila., announced she will host a bus trip from Philadelphia to the Pennsylvania Farm Show on Saturday, Jan. 13.  

The bus will leave Brown’s office, 1435 W. 52nd St., at 8 a.m. and will head back to Philadelphia at 4 p.m.

Brown said the trip is intended to provide school-age youth and their guardians the opportunity to experience the wonders of Pennsylvania farming and agriculture.

The 102nd edition of the Pennsylvania Farm Show opens Jan. 6 and runs daily through Jan. 13.

“Living in the city, it is easy to forget the long and proud tradition agriculture plays in our state’s heritage,” Brown said. “Pennsylvania remains a leader in agricultural and livestock farming, and the Farm Show is a great opportunity to see the fruits of our farmers’ labor. And the food court is always good, too.”

A $10 fee per person is required to secure a bus seat.

While the Farm Show offers many dining opportunities, they are not included in the bus fee, so riders will need to procure their own meals, Brown said.
