The Lehigh RiverFest is an outdoor festival hosted by Whitewater Challengers in Weatherly, PA. This annual celebration takes place every autumn, and it’s the perfect event for those who love to be active in nature.
Participants can take to the river in a kayak, canoe, paddleboard or raft, or even hit one of the many scenic bike trails along the river. If necessary, all equipment is available for rent at the festival.
There is even more fun nearby at Lehigh Gorge State Park, where guests can enjoy a paintball target range. There are many hiking trails for taking in NEPA’s beautiful foliage as it just begins to change.
For those interested, the festival offers guided rafting trips and overnight tent camping. There is a shuttle service offering transport to and from the rapids and nearby bike trails, and plenty of vendors will be on hand selling food and drinks, outdoor gear, and arts and crafts.
