NEPA Weekend Round-Up 07.10.20

Enjoy the Sweet Sounds of Summer

NEPA’s music scene is bringing live music at a safe social distance. The first Rockin’ the County concert will roll through the streets of Wilkes-Barre on Friday. Head to the Mauch Chunk Opera House for classic rock jams from Steal Your Peach, or watch from home with The Carbe and Durand Duo’s virtual concert.

Community festivals are starting to reappear with new health and safety precautions. The United We Stand Divided We Fall Block Party will raise awareness about diversity, unity and equality on Public Square in Wilkes-Barre.

Make the most of the summer sunshine and immerse yourself in nature at the Second Saturday Yoga Walk on the D&H Rail-Trail in Union Dale. Log some miles for a good cause for the Jake’s Pack Virtual 5K, or set sail on The Expedition, an inflatable kayak trip on the Lehigh River.

For all the wine lovers out there, book a tasting at The Underground Experience at Blue Ridge Winery or paddle your way along the Kayak Wine Tour with tastings at Bartolai Winery.

Spend an exciting weekend at the racetrack. Mohegan Sun Pocono is hosting two days of live harness racing.

And don’t forget, for all of our friends, families and neighbors, continue observing all recommended health and safety precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
