Weekend Roundup: 6 Best Non-Musikfest-Related Things to Do in the Lehigh Valley

By Stephanie Eckelkamp

Yeah, yeah, we know it's Musikfest! But if you're anything like me and want a more low-key weekend, then we've got you covered with some healthy, happy happenings. Including loads of delicious ice cream...which is totally healthy in summer because it prevents heat stroke (#AlternativeNutritionFact).   

Friday

Night Time Zip and Climb at Blue Mountain Resort (8-10pm/ $25)
Awesome date night opportunity! The first and third Friday of every month (through October), you can climb, zip, and swing your way through the Summit Aerial Park High Ropes Course at Blue Mountain, while experiencing the trippy glow of laser lights.  Buy tickets here

Saturday

Millions of peaches, peaches for me...and pretty much everyone  (9am-1pm/ Free)
It's Peach Day at the Easton Farmers' Market! Enjoy peach pie, peach sangria, peach cobbler and peaches by the bushel and peck -- plus all the usual stellar farm fresh offerings.

Yoga and Wine at Easton Wine Project (9:30-10:30am/ $20)
Rise and wine! Join Stephanie Riggs in a weekly rejuvenating, strengthening, yoga class. After your practice, get experience a free wine tasting. Sit, relax, and regroup in Easton Wine Project’s historic building before starting your Saturday.

Shakespeare in Love (8-10pm/ $50)
Yesss! One of our favorite Shakespeare-inspired rom-coms is taking the stage at Pennsylvania Shakespeare festival for two more nights (Saturday and Sunday)! Buy tickets here

Sunday

Barre3 in the Vineyard (9am/ Free)
It's the most wonderful time of the year! You know why? Because it's perfect for free outdoor Barre3 classes, like this one at Vynecrest Vineyards in Breinigsville. Bring your yoga mat and a gal (or guy) pal and get ready for a serious sweat session. Bonus: Cactus Blue Food Truck will be there after to help you recover, and you'll get to enjoy some live jazz if you stick around for a wine tasting. To register, call 610-841-8200.

Ice Cream Party at Easton Public Market (2-4pm/ $8-10) 
Did someone say ice cream?! The Easton Farmers' Market Kitchen will be crafting their own in-house homemade ice cream with fruits and ingredients sourced from local farms (including peaches from Scholl Orchards!), tropical growers, and others for the freshest tasting flavors.
