Back in the '60s and '70s, Ontelaunee Park in New Tripoli brought in many major performers; stars like George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty, and The Oak Ridge Boys.
Ontelaunee Park has long been closed.
Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe has certainly picked up the slack.
The schedule for the forthcoming year looks as ambitious as ever. While the calendar is far from complete, the venue has already signed such acts as Heart, country greats Gary Allen and Vince Gill, Dr. Hook, REO Speedwagon, and Queensryche.
Penn's Peak doesn't take a winter break.
