Check Out Local Art, Take a Ride in a Race Car and Meet Baby Farm Animals this Fun-Filled Weekend
A variety of events fill this weekend with fun for all. Downtown Wilkes-Barre’s Fine Arts Fiesta brings the festivities to Public Square with four days of live music and art shows. Shenandoah’s Kielbasi Festival & Heritage Day encourages guests to enjoy all the cultural food and fun they can handle. And Jim Thorpe’s Birthday Weekend honors the town’s namesake with two days of ceremonies and birthday celebrations.
Tribute shows bring the 70s to NEPA. Experience the closest thing to rock n’ roll’s longest running act with Classic Stones, a tribute to the band’s heyday. Or grab your platforms and head to the F.M. Kirby Center for an evening of disco hits with The New York Bee Gees.
Come together at Nay Aug for a good cause at Walk MS, an event benefitting MS research and awareness. Unwind at Blue Ridge Winery’s 5th Annual Wine & Song Festival, an afternoon of world class wines and great tunes from local acts. And for the thrill seekers out there, you can Drive or Ride NASCAR Race Cars at the Pocono Raceway.
Get a history lesson with the help of the Steamtown National Historic Site with an Electric City Heritage Tour through Scranton’s landmarks. Or take the kids to meet the newest members of Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm at the 33rd Annual Farm Animal Frolic.
