Bradford has become known for the "Old Fashioned Christmas" that occurs annually. The Bradford Main Street Manager and local merchants enjoy making the downtown look festive. The store windows are lit with beautiful lights. Fun, winter activities take place including old fashioned hay rides, ice skating, a wine walk and more.
A national historic district with a population of 8,194, Bradford is nestled in northwestern Pennsylvania's forest-covered hillsides at the Allegheny National Forest's edge. It is a Hallmark-type town where people say hello, and the shopkeepers know your name. Bradford celebrates each year with twinkling white lights and a sprinkle of snowflakes decorating the town, and an Old Fashioned Christmas celebration downtown.
