According to the 2000 Census report approximately 4,500+ residents call the borough home with the majority of the residents working outside of the borough limits in Harrisburg, Lancaster and Hershey. On New Year's Eve the town likes to drop a Lollipop (The Lollipop Drop) similar to what they do at Times Square but on a much smaller scale.
If you are looking for lodging and accommodations in Hummelstown your best bet is to book a hotel/motel in the Harrisburg or Hershey area. You'll find many great ones to choose from.
Afterwards we did some holiday shopping in the businesses up and down the main street. I really loved shopping in the Rhodes Pharmacy & Gift Shop who had beautiful items that I picked up for the holidays. There is also a toy store on the square and we picked up several Christmas gifts in there for the kids in our family.
