The Blueberry Festival is held at Burnside Plantation each July.

The dog days of summer are upon us, and there’s nothing more refreshing than a basket of blueberries. Each July, Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites bring its annual Blueberry Festival to Bethlehem’s Burnside Plantation in the heart of Lehigh Valley.

Located just a short drive from the downtown Main Street region, Burnside Plantation transports you back to colonial days. You’d never guess that this historic property is tucked just behind Martin Tower!

The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival celebrates its 25th season.

As the string quartet finishes on the greens, I take the last sip of my wine; it is a beautiful evening here in Center Valley, PA.  Like so many others, we are here for the opening night of Julius Caesar for the 25th season at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.

Energy is high as we enter the small, intimate Schubert Theatre. The theater is beautiful with only 187 seats, making no bad seat in the house.  As the director, Patriuck Mulcahy, exits the stage after his welcome remarks, the audience becomes anxious. The tale begins and you immediately step into the streets of Rome cheering on glorious Caesar as he is paraded around over his victory.

Explore these unique pieces of outdoor art.

In the morning the fog blankets the crumbling concrete. In the afternoon, the sun gleams off of the gemstones. The light breeze ruffles the aluminum cans creating a soft whisper. This concrete playground of recycled materials is right in the Christmas City. This is the Lehigh Millennium Folk Arch and Art Enclave (“Enclave”).

Who Says The NASCAR Experience Is Just For Sundays? Not Pocono Raceway!

Get your engines ready!

Pocono Raceway revved up the fans with tons of action at the Axalta “We Paint Winners” 400 NASCAR Race held June 3 – 5, 2016. I didn’t make it to the Friday events, but there was plenty going on during that gorgeous day at the Tricky Triangle. Friday was practice for the Sprint Cup and xfinity Series, along with qualifying for the ARCA race that was held close to 6 p.m. After the race, the infield came alive with a block party bar and live music going till midnight.

If you are looking for a NASCAR experience but don’t want to deal with the crowds and the traffic, then you must get to a Saturday event. The day was jam packed with gates opening at 8 a.m. Qualifying for the big Sunday race started at 9:15 a.m., followed by practice for the Sprint Cup Series at 11:30 a.m.

Celebrate Father's Day in Lehigh Valley.

Summertime in Lehigh Valley is in full effect and the next holiday is right around the corner. Sunday, June 19 marks Father’s Day this year and the weekend is filled with events, meals, activities, and more to celebrate dad.

Last year I scored tickets to the IronPigs game on Father’s Day which was a perfect day out in the sun. This year, the IronPigs play the Buffalo Bisons all weekend long and you are guaranteed to have some fun.  On Sunday, there is a BBQ set for the first 2,000 men (18+) that enter the stadium to enjoy before/during the game.
