When it comes to late summer fun, getting outside is the name of the game. Tee off at Shadowbrook Golf Course in Tunkhannock on Friday night for a round of Glowball. Wake up and chill on Saturday at Wilkes-Barre’s River Common for a little Riverfront Yoga. Hook up with Pocono Biking and venture onto the famous D& L Trail after dark on Saturday for a tranquil Twilight ride. And cap it all off on Sunday with an all-encompassing, all-day adventure with Pocono Whitewater.

Bring the kids to the Coach Barn at The Lands at Hillside Farms for a free, Friday evening showing of Charlotte’s Web. Saturday offers options to catch the iconic Rolling Stones live on the big screen at the Circle Drive-In. Or, head to the Mahoning Drive-In for a weekend of wild wrestling-themed fun. Finish the weekend with a free, Sunday jazz concert at Scranton’s Nay Aug Park.

Get a glimpse of Pittston’s artistic side at the city’s popular Second Friday Art Walk. And fill up the pantry with farm-fresh goodies at Lakeland Orchard & Cidery’s incredible U-Pick Produce event all weekend long.
