Local News

Discover Presque Isle brought thousands of residents and visitors to Presque Isle State Park.  

This year, the event was held at beach eleven.  

Many vendors have been setting up booths since the start of the event twenty-five years ago.  
But one first time vendor said the experience has been nothing but positive.
With sand sculptures, vendors, live music and of course, food, there was something for everyone at Discover Presque Isle. 
One local vendor said his sale come mostly from former residents who come back to visit for the event.
“It brings a lot of people, and it’s an event that brings a lot of local people who have moved out of the community, back to the community. So I get a lot of feedback on that and that’s really a lot of my sales are people that come back to visit that lived in Erie that are now out of Erie that want to take something back with them,” said Scott Peterman, a landscape photographer.
