The Harrisburg Heat are an American professional indoor soccer team based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The team is a part of the Indoor Professional League.

History

Since colonial days, farming has remained one of Pennsylvania’s top industries. In the mid-1600s, Pennsylvania’s founder William Penn organized an agricultural show for farmers to gather and share their knowledge. Throughout the next several hundred years, the gatherings were held in various locations throughout the state and eventually migrated to the capitol of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg. It was spread through various buildings in the downtown area.

Expanding

In 2001, work began on a $76 million expansion and renovation of the facility. The Exposition Hall, Equine Arena, Equine Barn, wash racks, connector links, new heat and air handling units in the Large and Small Arenas, a new entrance to the Large Arena and an additional off-site parking area was included in the project. This latest expansion increased the exhibit space to nearly one million square feet including eight major halls and three arenas.

Throughout the years, the Farm Show has continued to thrive and grow, most recently hosting 585,000 visitors during the eight day event. Today, the Farm Show remains the largest indoor agricultural event in the world that includes 24 acres of animals, educational encounters, displays and food, family and fun. Each year at the Farm Show, people gather around to watch a real Texas-styled rodeo.
