Leap Day 2020: Things to do in Hershey, PA

Saturday Leap Year fun in The Sweetest Place On Earth

Not only do we get an extra day in 2020, but it's on a Saturday! Spend your Leap Year weekend in Hershey The Sweetest Place On Earth. There's plenty to do! Check out some of the ideas we've outlined below. 

Celebrate Chocolate-Covered February

We celebrated the treat that makes our town so sweet all month long, but Saturday marks the last day of our 16th annual Chocolate-Covered February

 

Cheer on the home team

The Hershey Bears are having a show-stopping season. They're currently in first place in the Atlantic Division and second in the Eastern Conference. They take on rival Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins on Saturday; puck drops at 7 p.m. Be part of the excitement and bring your friends and family to cheer on the B-E-A-R-S, BEARS BEARS BEARS!

See the Broadway show, "BANDSTAND"

"Bandstand," the Broadway show that explodes with infectious music and high-octane, heart-stopping dancing, visits Hershey Theatre on Saturday with performances at 2 and 8 p.m. Before you go, check out this behind-the-scenes look at the story behind the show.

Experience the tropics, indoors

The indoor Butterfly Atrium at Hershey Gardens is the perfect way to keep warm while learning about dozens of rare butterflies from South and Central America, Africa, and Asia. The tropical setting of the Atrium provides fun for every member of the family. 

 

Learn about our founder

The Hershey Story Museum honors and preserves the life and legacy of Milton S. Hershey, the town he created and the lives he touched. Museum exhibits explore Mr. Hershey's early failures, how he successfully revolutionized the process of making milk chocolate, the "other" model town he built in Cuba and how he and his wife, Kitty, created Milton Hershey School. Today the School stands as the Hersheys' legacy and is the world's largest residential home and school for children in financial and social need.

While you're at The Hershey Story, grab tickets for interactive Chocolate Lab and Chocolate Tastings experiences. 

 

Warm up at Chocolate World

There's always something to do inside at Hershey's Chocolate World Attraction. Create Your Own Candy Bar, help solve the mystery at the 4D Chocolate Movie and become a chocolate tasting expert at the new Hershey's Unwrapped experience. Don't forget about the FREE Hershey's Chocolate Tour
