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.
