The Rivalry returns home this year. After being played outside of Lehigh Valley for only the second time in its history, returning to the Valley where it means so much to so many.

Lehigh vs. Lafayette is “The Rivalry” and it is no secret any more.

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.

This year Heritage Day is on Sunday, July 12 in celebration of a historic event.

The Abel Opera House, Sigal Bridal Gallery, and the Sigal Museum all have one very big thing in common: their location. The Abel Opera House and Sigal Bridal Gallery evolved to what is now the historic downtown Easton’s Sigal Museum. I say “evolved” as the museum still pays homage to these previous tenants in many ways through their exhibits. Opening in the summer of 2010, the Sigal Museum is a gem in the historic downtown, flying a bright red banner reading “History Here” on its exterior. The museum is a mere block from the Easton Farmers’ Market, and a must-see if you are in the area! There is something in this museum for everyone – adults and children alike.

The sign says it all.

Celebrate Summer at Dorney Park

Those of us that live in the Northeast know that it has been a brutal winter and we would do anything to skip over spring and go right to summer. Sure, we’ve had signs that warmer weather is coming with one “warmish” day here or there, and then we’d be right back to cold temps. The poor flowers don’t know which end is up, and I’m sure all the parents out there are going stir crazy trying to find new indoor activities to keep their kids at bay.
