I can't wait to do these again

Everything old is new again and the “same old, same old” is not humdrum. Sometimes attractions and events that happen each year are the most fun Lehigh Valley things that I want to do again this coming year.

April 4th, 2013 is Opening Day for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Last season, our ‘Pigs fell short of replicating their playoff run of 2011, but they were in the hunt until the very end. Meaningful baseball down the stretch starts with a good April and I’ll be there again to cheer them on.

You can't dodge the fun!

Tuesday happens to be my favorite day of the week. Why, you ask? Sure, there’s some good shows on TV, it’s not Monday anymore and it’s a bit closer to Friday… you get the point.  But the real reason I enjoy Tuesdays: dodgeball.

That’s right.  Dodgeball.  I’m sure you have two images in your mind right now:  third-grade gym class and a big-screen battle between Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn.  Put those two together and that’s what the ROC Social Club brings to Allentown on Tuesday nights.

As we enter 2013, I decided to compile yet another list of things that are often overlooked in Lehigh Valley. Sure we have the Sands® Casino Resort Bethlehem, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom along with The Crayola Experience™ and the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, but this blog is giving the proverbial “shout out” to the smaller players that make our area so unique. So without further ado here are 10 places that I’m making a point to visit over the course of the year.

10. Dutch Springs Aqua Park – A real treat for those warm summer days.

Lehigh Valley Mascots

Lehigh Valley has some adorable mascots already.

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs have Ferrous and Fefe.

JustBorn has Mike and Ike and a bunch of PEEPS.

Yocco’s has the Hot Dog King.

Bear Creek Mountain Resort has their big fuzzy bear.

And, now the Lehigh Valley Phantoms ice hockey team has Dax, a fun looking beaver.

But, what about Lehigh Valley at large? What would be an appropriate, or even just the most fun, mascot that could encapsulate the whole area?

We’re not 100 percent sure, but we did come up with a few, let us know your thoughts.

Lehigh vs. Lafayette

The rivalry renews this weekend at Fisher Stadium in Easton. Yeah, I said “the” Rivalry, nevermind Harvard v. Yale, you can keep your Ohio State v. Michigan, I’ll grant you some merit to Army v. Navy, but this is “the” Rivalry!

The most played rivalry in all of college football, started in Lehigh Valley on October 25, 1884. Yeah, it’s been around a while.

It may appear to most, that summer is over. There are no more Friday nights under the lights at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center, there will be no more baseball at Coca-Cola Park, school has started, Musikfest and the Great Allentown Fair are in the rear view mirror and the weather for the week is rather wet.

Don’t fret, Lehigh Valley. There is still a little summer left to salvage. Summer’s official end is September 21st and I now submit to you the top 5 things to do in the waning days of summer.
