Westmoreland Ramble @ Rally will start and finish at the Donohoe Campus
Oct 17 all-day

A fun family-friendly road rally showcasing the beauty of Westmoreland County.  The Westmoreland Ramble will start and end at the Donohoe Campus at 218 Donohoe Road, Greensburg PA.  An after-rally celebration will feature music by The NewLanders and food trucks with refreshments available for purchase.

No rally experience is needed!  Each car must have a driver and navigator, and can hold as many other occupants as there are seatbelts.  No calculations are required;  scoring is based on answers to sometimes devious questions.  This is a wonderfully fun way to enjoy Westmoreland’s fall colors!
