On Saturday evening, the All-American Rejects brought quite a show to the Sands Steel Stage at Musikfest.

On a cool, but comfortable, night openers The Lawsuits warmed up the crowd and just after 8:30 p.m., the main act took the stage.  The audience cheered and sang along to the band’s radio hits, as well as some deeper cuts that spanned their four albums.

PA Shakespeare Festival's Cinderella & Prince Charming

Most little girls dream of becoming a princess. You know, falling in love with prince charming. Living in a great big castle. Having gobs of money to do whatever you please. And, for that very reason, most little girls look up to Cinderella, the original fairy tale character who goes from rags to riches and is swept off her feet by the most handsome man around. It seems like the perfect world when you’re a kid, so why not dream big, right?

Well, dreaming isn’t just for kids! In fact, dreaming keeps the brain young. And, to relive my childhood dream, I couldn’t think of a better thing to do than to go see Cinderella at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival at DeSales University. I saw it a couple of years ago, but knew it wouldn’t be the very same production. It never is! Last time I took my niece, who was 11 at the time. She was definitely not too old for it and we had an absolute blast. This year, it was my 84-year old grandmother’s turn, along with my 65-year old mother! Yup, three generations of us gals, enjoying a fun day out together.

World Cup Fever has a cure in Lehigh Valley

Every four years, the world pauses, to watch the beautiful game, together. In England, a country with many football teams, there is only one team, England and the same can be said for Spain, France, Germany and the United States.

This one isn’t for club, this is for country and that means something. Especially, to the 32 countries that qualified, but this isn’t just about 32 countries. It’s about the world, as this is the world’s game, and whether you call it football, futbol or soccer, this is a premier event, so why not watch it at a premier viewing party.
