Say Goodbye to Summer with One Last Weekend of Food, Music and Fun on the Farm

Spend your last weekend of summer welcoming a little fall spirit on the farm. Head to Roba Family Farm in Scott Twp. for their Farmtastic opening weekend. Stop by the insanely accurate Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm in Stroudsburg on Saturday for their Autumn on the Farm educational series. And don’t forget to check out the amazing Halloween Light Show at Lakeland Orchard & Cidery all weekend long.

Maybe you missed all those greasy festival eats this summer. The Jefferson Twp. Volunteer Fire Co. will be hosting a Drive Thru Food Festival on Friday and Saturday. Then, the Exaltation of the Holy Cross Church in Hanover Twp. will be dishing out potato pancakes on Saturday.

Burn off all those calories on Sunday at the intense Blue Burn Trail Challenge at the Blue Mountain Resort in Palmerton. Or, take a more meditative approach with an outdoor yoga session hosted by Yoga West on the Lackawanna County Courthouse lawn.

Throw it back at the Mahoning Drive-In all weekend with a stable of classic films during their VHS-Fest IV. Jam out on Saturday with the Allman Betts Band at the Circle Drive-In. Then, slow it down on Sunday at the relaxing and free Nay Aug Park Concert Series.
