Kick off November with a Little Outdoor Fun, Local Art, Live Music and Brunch

First things first: a little fun for the kids. Head down to The Arts Barn in Schuylkill Haven on Saturday and learn how to create a colorful Northern Lights masterpiece. On Saturday, stop by the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Kempton for Eagle Day. Make time on Sunday to meet some royalty at the Grand Bank in Ashley during their popular Princess Paint Party.

Save some time for a little exercise this weekend. Lace up for the Helping Hometown Heroes 5K at the Blakely Borough Recreational Complex on Saturday morning. Board the Bike Train all weekend in Jim Thorpe and pedal your way back along the scenic Lehigh Gorge Trail. And, on Sunday, join the ladies for a stunning, empowering hike along the Skyline Trail at the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary.

Friday night offers a trio of incredible entertainment options. Make your way to ShawneeCraft Brewing’s outdoor Beer Garden to catch the amazing StreetBox Strummer. Then, take in the Electric City’s local art scene during Scranton’s First Friday self-guided art walk. Or, stop by the Moonlite Drive-In and catch the big screen premiere of “F-Word,” a locally-produced feature film.

And, of course, put a cap on this epic weekend with a hearty, 21 and over brunch at Mountain View Vineyards, Winery, Brewery & Distillery in Stroudsburg.
