Open containers of alcohol are now allowed in limited circumstances within Shippensburg Borough. 

Borough council unanimously passed an ordinance, amending “Alcoholic Beverages: Open Containers,” Tuesday evening, repealing previous language that prohibited open containers in the borough, and replacing it with exceptions allowing the public to consume open containers of alcohol on designated days in public areas.
