Whatever you call it, it is Beautiful.

Exactly, one month and one day ago, on September 23rd, the autumnal equinox occurred, ushering in the first day of fall. And, there are only 58 days remaining in fall before the winter solstice ushers in winter on December 21st. Without discussing the Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Hanukkah or the last shopping weekend before Christmas, let’s look at a few Lehigh Valley seasonal musts!

Summer Family Fun

There isn’t much time left to enjoy summer in Lehigh Valley, as Labor Day is just around the corner. However, for as much excitement as three day weekends are for the family, Labor Day pretty much ends family fun, because the kids are going back to school.

First and foremost, Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom as two parks in one, ends on Labor Day, as that is the end of Wildwater Kingdom’s season.
