Celebrating The Banana Split

The first ever Great American Banana Split Festival is coming this weekend.  Just a few months after being designated the official home of the banana split, Latrobe Pennsylvania today begins a three-day celebration.  A young pharmacist in Latrobe is credited in 1904 with inventing the big ice cream creation for a group of students at Saint Vincent College.  As part of the street party, there will be a '50s sock hop, a family street fair and a "flash mob" which will simultaneously peel bananas.  There will also be a banana baking contest and tons of ice cream.
