A New Year is upon us and it’s time to look forward to Lehigh Valley fun in the upcoming year.

January, the beginning of the calendar year, isn’t always about beginnings as it is usually the middle of winter and a great time to hit the slopes on one or both ski areas in Lehigh Valley: Bear Creek and Blue Mountain.

World Series of Bicycling

Last Friday, I returned, once again, to the Valley Preferred Cycling Center for the Opening Friday Night Race of the World Series of Bicycling. There was something familiar, yet there was a brand new atmosphere.

I have always maintained that Friday Nights at the Velodrome are family fun. Now it’s taken to the next level.

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.

From Opening Night 2011

Saturday was the end of my summer. For me, it’s a little later than most. When I attend VeloFest at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center, it’s the end of my trips to the Velodrome until next year. In my head, I equate the Velodrome with summer, so when it’s my last visit for the season it’s officially the end of my summer.

VeloFest was packed with people, bikes, food and beer. The rain stayed away, and although it was overcast there were no damp spirits. The crowd was full of both amateurs and professionals shopping in a “tent city” for deals. I, myself, just enjoy looking at the wares and the bikes; some new, some old, all with a story. If it sounds poetic, then so be it.

Lehigh Valley IronPigs

A few weeks back I had the opportunity to spend a day showing off Lehigh Valley to a member of the media from Scranton, Christopher J. Hughes, who is also a close friend.

He was here to complement his story on the SWB Yankees. He’d been hearing about our beautiful Coca-Cola Park from me since it opened including the great atmosphere and the success of the IronPigs. The SWB Yankees are hoping to remedy some of their issues with their new stadium, scheduled to open for the 2013 season.

Recently, I invited some friends over to hang out. Easy enough, over they came. Done. Good times were had by all, but something was missing. We all wanted food, but no one wanted to go out and no one wanted to cook.

My solution: some of the best food you can get at a fair or festival in Lehigh Valley, Vince’s.
