Fireworks kick off just after dusk.

I love fireworks, but I miss them every year on the 4th of July because we go to a friend’s picnic instead. Not to worry! While Lehigh Valley has fabulous firework displays in Allentown and Bethlehem on the 4th, Easton holds out for a later date. Why, you may ask? Easton’s big celebration is on Heritage Day.

Around the World in Lehigh Valley

By Laura Eppler

Around the World in 80 Days is a delightful journey of whimsy. The five incredibly talented cast members, who together played dozens of roles, seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves.

The actors occasionally engaged members of the audience, who relished their moments in the spotlight and were pretty comical themselves.
