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.

Andre Reed - 2014 Hall of Fame Inductee

Saturday night before the Super Bowl is when the National Football League holds their annual NFL Honors ceremony, honoring players with awards and announcing the new Hall of Fame Inductees. This year, Lehigh Valley has reason to celebrate, as one of our own, Andre Reed from Allentown, Pennsylvania, was named to the NFL Hall of Fame Class of 2014.

His football career started right here at Dieruff High School and in his Senior year he led them to a tri-championship, tying with Emmaus and Whitehall. From there he went on to Kutztown University where he caught the eye of NFL scouts. In 1985 Reed was drafted in the fourth round as the 86th overall selection by the Buffalo Bills.

With crispness in the Lehigh Valley air and fall on the horizon, here are 10 places that you must check out locally and get your picture taken at. These are not ranked in any particular order, so no harsh criticism; with the exception of letting me know if I missed any “must sees.” I dropped them all into Instagram because it makes any picture look good.
