John Callahan’s Lehigh Valley Discovery
May 11th, 2010 posted by Kim Lilly
Last week, we shared the first of many Lehigh Valley celebrity discoveries in honor of our Discover Lehigh Valley contest (share your Lehigh Valley discovery and you could win a $200 Visa gift card). Since we’ll be selecting the first of three randomly drawn winners this Monday, we’re ramping up our promotion and will be sharing a new celebrity discovery every weekday for the rest of the month, right here on Lehigh Valley InSite.
Bethlehem native, Moravian College alum, former Bethlehem City Councilman and current mayor of Bethlehem John Callahan.
“My favorite Lehigh Valley discovery is the various parades and festivals that happen in downtown Bethlehem.
I’m especially fond of the Halloween Parade at the end of October. I always sit at the corner of Main and Market streets looking south. You’ll see scores of kids and families standing four and five people deep on both sides of Main Street with the historic Moravian buildings and South Mountain in the background as a perfect, colorful fall backdrop. The famous Liberty High School Grenadier band marches down Main Street as the bagpipes play and it makes for a perfect setting on a perfect day in downtown Bethlehem.”
Check back tomorrow for our next celebrity discovery! In the meantime, we’d love to hear what your favorite Lehigh Valley discovery is. Click here to submit your photo or story today.
