Allentown is located in Lehigh County in east-central Pennsylvania. It's the third most populous city in the state, following Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. As of the 2010 census, the population was 118,032. The city is located on the Lehigh River, and is the largest of three adjacent towns that make up a region of eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey known as Lehigh Valley. The city of Allentown has twice been awarded the "All America City Award." It holds the historical significance of being the location where the Liberty Bell (then known as the Pennsylvania State House Bell) was successfully hidden from the British during the American Revolutionary War. Today, a shrine and museum, known as the Liberty Bell Museum, marks the spot where the famous bell was hidden. The city of Allentown has one of the best park systems in the country, including Bicentennial Park, which includes a 4,600-acre mini-stadium for sporting events. Allentown hosts several festivals and special events, including the Great Allentown Fair which has been held there since 1889. The Mayfair Festival of the Arts was established in 1986 and is held each May at Cedar Beach Park. Allentown is also home to a symphony orchestra and an art museum that houses more than 13,000 pieces of art, along with a library. The city of Allentown is approximately 60 miles north of Philadelphia.
