Paddle Board Yoga in Lehigh Valley

A few years ago, I took a vacation to Kauai, Hawaii. During my trip, I noticed a ton of people on stand up paddle boards in water, and even doing yoga on the paddle boards. I thought to myself, “What a cool sport, I wish Lehigh Valley offered paddle board yoga.”

Well, guess what ladies and gentlemen, Lehigh Valley does have Paddle Board Yoga Classes and they are offered at several locations throughout the region. I was pretty excited to get my feet wet and take my practice to the water.

The Lehigh Valley International Airport listened to visitors and their suggestions from last year’s wildly popular #LVAirshow, making some key changes that should result in an even better family friendly event.

This is the Gym you're looking for...

I joined a gym. Not just any gym though. I didn’t want one of those “I pick things up, and put things down” kinda places. I also didn’t want a meat market-type gym. And, I definitely didn’t want a gym where I couldn’t get onto any of the equipment.

My requirements were that it had to be some place clean, safe and not crowded. I wanted a gym with state-of-the-art equipment. I also wanted the ability to take classes, and to not have to pay extra for those classes.

With another successful Musikfest behind us, it’s time to look ahead to the 162nd Great Allentown Fair, August 26 – September 1.

1.5 Million at Musikfest 2014

It may have been due to Keith Urban’s good looks and energetic performance. Maybe it was Aw Shucks great tasting corn on the cob. Maybe it was the Polynesian dance performances by Polynesian Dance Productions. Either way, Musikfest attracted a near-record crowd of 1.15 million for 2014, according to a news release.

“This year Mother Nature truly shined on us, as we had the best weather in many years,” says ArtsQuest President Jeff Parks. “The comfortable evenings and sunny skies on many days, coupled with the diverse festival lineup, led to excellent crowds on a number of days.  While the late cancellation at the Sands Steel Stage on Aug. 1 will have a slight impact on the overall financial numbers, it looks like revenues from the festival will definitely be up over 2013, helping to provide additional funding to support our free arts and cultural programming for the community throughout the year.”

Keith Urban packed the house

Keith Urban couldn’t have been more charming, charismatic, and entertaining during the final Sands Steel Stage performance at Muskiest 2014.

His energetic and perfect-for-summer music was almost overshadowed by the way in which he interacted with the audience, going as far as to bring fans onstage and go through the crowd to play at directly for those in the bleacher seats (something we’re pretty sure is a Sands Steel Stage first.)

Alan Jackson

Where I Come From, there’s no corn bread & chicken, but, on a perfect Friday night Alan Jackson’s concert at Sands Steel Stage, had me “Gone Country.”

The song list was hard & soft, old and new, with a big screen behind the band showing the original song video recording which I thought was very special. Surrounded by an incredibly talented band, the crowd cheered extra loud, when he acknowledged his fiddle player, from Pittsburgh.
