    Jeeps Invade Downtown Butler, PA

     
    For one evening each year, Jeeps rule Main Street in downtown Butler, PA. The Jeep Invasion is limited to 1,200 jeeps and this year every spot was taken. For 16 blocks, the streets were lined with Jeeps parked on both sides of the street. Participants came from all the Mid-Atlantic States to participate.

    Bands and DJ’s played along Main Street. Restaurateurs on Main Street set up shop on the sidewalk to feed the estimated 20,000 spectators who came to walk the entire length of the downtown area.

    The annual Jeep Invasion pays homage to the Bantam Jeep which was originally invented, developed and produced in Butler, PA.
