The Spillway-Day Trip Part 2

After going to Deer Park last Wednesday, we headed over to The Spillway in Linesville, PA. The Spillway is Pennsylvania's second most popular tourist attraction.

The Spillway is fascinating...and slightly disgusting. I used to love to go feed the fish as a kid. This time, my kids got to feed them!

The Spillway is a place where thousands of huge fish and birds congregate, because people come to feed them all day. There are so many fish crammed into one spot, that the birds are known to walk on top of them. Dylan was amazed when he accidentally dropped an entire hot dog bun in the water and one of the fish swallowed it whole!

Our time at the Spillway ended with the kids devouring big bags of cotton candy.

We stopped at the fish hatchery for a quick visit.

We ended our trip with an early dinner, and then headed home! We all had a fun day!

  5. Oh my good lord. That many fish would completely gross me out. In fact, the pictures of that many fish left me with shivers. Blech.

    Glad the kids had a good time though!
