The Beautiful Cycle

The Holidays are just as much a time to look back as they are a time to look forward.

With this in mind, we have put together a small collection of Lehigh Valley images from our Instagram covering the past year. From Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton, to our sports, holidays, and annual events. There’s something for everyone. The images were chosen largely for based on seasonality, then based on having a high number of likes or comments.

Discover Lehigh Valley recently celebrated its 31st Annual Meeting with the help of our keynote speaker Meridith Elliott Powell, and more than 140 of our partners. We thank Meridith for a very informative and captivating keynote presentation and here is a recap of the event through her eyes. Enjoy!

Cheers to the inaugural Cider and Wine Festival!

The Lehigh Valley Cider and Wine Festival was a perfect Saturday afternoon. The Lehigh Valley IronPigs nailed the inaugural, sold-out event right on the field of Coca-Cola Park. The festival featured hard cider and wine tastings from the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail and local and regional cideries.

Cider is my favorite drink of choice and wine comes in at a close second so you could say I was living the dream (at least in my eyes). From the moment my friends and I made our entrance, we knew we were in for a treat.
