Get Out and Soak Up Some Sun With Baby Goats, Beer Tents and Sidewalk Sales

Start your weekend on the right foot with some awesome outdoor activities. Practice a little yoga with a view at Blue Mountain Resort’s Saturday Outdoor Yoga. Explore the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Trail with the experts at their health and wellness event on Saturday morning. Then, back to zen on Sunday at Buttinhead Farms for their ridiculously cute Kids Goat Yoga.

Friday is all about fueling up. Start with a relaxing stop at Pressed Coffee & Books for their Boba Days specialty drinks. Then, clock out and head to Tolino Vineyards for their famous Food Truck Friday. End the weekend the same way with a Sunday visit to Hazleton POWER’s Food & Vendor Showcase. And then close it all out with a few beers and quick Cornhole Tournament for a great cause at ShawneeCraft Brewing Company.

You might as well get in a little shopping while you’re at it. Get online all weekend for the Rotary Club of Wilkes-Barre and Kingston’s Razzle Dazzle Raffle. Then, make your way to Dunmore on Saturday for the Saint Joseph’s Center Sidewalk Sale.

And, after you’ve got all that done, hop on the famous Bike Train out of Jim Thorpe for an enchanting chug along the beautiful Lehigh Gorge Trail (and an easy 25-mile pedal back to town).
