Banana Split Celebration

Did you know that Latrobe is the home of the first banana split?  Making its debut in 1904, the banana split sundae was created by David Strickler, Latrobe native and pharmacy apprentice.

This year, on Friday, August 20 and Saturday, August 21, Latrobe will be having its annual Banana Split Celebration!  This two-day event is jam-packed with lots of things to do such as:

Comedy and Magic Show with Steve Haberman and Tracy’s Song & Dance Show in the courtyard of Adams Memorial Library

Yellow Tie Gala at the Latrobe Art Center

5k Banana Run at Legion Keener Park

A Car Show, vendors, food, games, fun and so much more!
