No Airfare Required

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!

That’s about all I have when it comes to Irish sayings and phrases. Excuse my corniness. But I do consider myself to have a pretty good understanding of Irish culture, because I spent a week there at the end of this past June.

St. Patrick's Day Activities in Lehigh Valley!

St. Patrick’s Day is usually the time of year in Lehigh Valley where a glint of spring begins to shine down on the streets that just a few weeks ago were feet deep in snow.

Thankfully, Lehigh Valley is home to not one, but two great St. Patrick’s Day city celebrations in for the form of the 58th Allentown St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the 5th Celtic Classic Parade of the Shamrocks in downtown Bethlehem. If you’re like us, you’re going to attend both, but if you have to decide, we’ll give you a breakdown on both as well as a few other events going on throughout the area.
