Pottstown hosts Citadel Palooza
Country star Hunter Hayes headlines benefit for area children’s hospital
POTTSTOWN » There was music in the air Oct. 7 as Pottstown helped kick off the first-ever Citadel Palooza.
Memorial Park was packed with thousands of concert-goers Saturday afternoon as the inaugural Citadel Palooza got set for a night of music, featuring country star Hunter Hayes and several local opening acts.
The event was a celebration of Citadel’s 80th anniversary and to honor the credit union’s philosophy of “people helping people,” 100 percent of the proceeds were donated to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
The celebration included performances by Stephanie Grace, The Jess Zimmerman Band, Kendal Conrad, Alicia Beale, Carter Winter and of course, headliner Hunter Hayes.
Food trucks from area businesses and a beer tent by Sly Fox were also set up at Memorial Park for guests to enjoy.
Fans had fun dancing and listening to live country music at the Citadel Palooza in Memorial Park Oct. 7.
Douglassville’s own Stephanie Grace, the first opening act at Citadel Palooza Saturday, signs autographs for fans who waited beside the stage to meet her.
