Downtown Erie will be featured on the Pennsylvania Cable Network

Erie, PA—The Erie Downtown Partnership (EDP) will host a viewing party on Thursday, October 8th, 2015 for the premiere of the downtown Erie segment to be featured in the 7:30 PM airing of the Pennsylvania Cable Network’s (PCN) Discover Main Street series.

The viewing party is free and open to the public. It will kick-off at 7:00 PM inside the new Bourbon Barrel Bar, 1213 State Street with the live premiere beginning at 7:30 PM.  Refreshments will be served and a cash bar is available.

EDP CEO John Buchna says, “Our organization is very excited to show off our downtown community to the many loyal viewers of PCN. We really enjoyed working with PCN and the Pennsylvania Downtown Center to make this happen.”

The Pennsylvania Downtown Center helped fund the “Discover Main Street” series to offer PCN’s viewers a virtual ‘boots-on-the ground’ experience of downtown revitalization in core communities across the Commonwealth.

Buchna adds, “We understand PCN’s viewers are proud of their Pennsylvania heritage, and can explore communities across the Commonwealth in new ways through this segment. We hear frequently from visitors around the state who have never been to Erie that they just didn’t know how beautiful Erie is and how much it has to offer.  We’re working to change that.”

For those that can’t attend the viewing party or want to tune into PCN at home, the Erie Discover Main Street segment will also air on Friday, October 9th at 11:00 AM and Sunday, October 11th at 2:00 PM on Time Warner Cable channel 22.

The Erie Downtown Partnership is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the revitalization of downtown Erie by improving its image, business climate, physical environment, and design.
