Holiday Festivities Around the Lehigh Valley


In case you haven’t noticed, it’s December and we are in full holiday season. And while many tourists will flock to Bethlehem, aka the Christmas City, this holiday season, it’s important to remember that all of the Valley’s cities are being festive.

Easton has some great holiday shopping, with the shoppes around Centre Square having sales and bargains galore. The Peace Candle is also up — I was lucky to see it this weekend when I went to brunch at Sette Luna and it really put me in a holiday mood.

Of course, there is ton to do in Bethlehem, including the various Christmas tours, schedules and information for which can be found on the Bethlehem website. The shopping in Bethlehem is also amazing with many boutiques in both downtown Bethlehem and SouthSide Bethlehem.

And we can’t forget Lights in the Parkway in Allentown, a fifteen year tradition. The Lehigh Parkway has been turned into a winter wonderland destination with lights, music and animated displays. Admission price is per vehicle, providing an affordable fun activity for the whole family. For more information visit Lights in the Parkway website.
