Festival season is upon us!
From art shows and ethnic foods, to train rides, chocolate and wine, you can find it all happening in our neck of the woods this weekend.
Tonight, stroll through the streets of Wilkes-Barre that are alive with visual art, live performers, and other vendors.
Tomorrow, head to the historic town of Montrose to pick up a free complimentary wine glass and indulge in wine and candy samples from regional wineries and local businesses, or explore what’s new in downtown Honesdale. You can also celebrate an accomplished athlete of the 20th century by joining in on the annual birthday celebration for Jim Thorpe that will feature food, craft vendors, and other festivities throughout the Victorian town. And for those of you in Schuylkill County, you can’t miss out on the unlimited samples from 30 breweries at the annual Brew Fest!
Mark your calendars for:
