Need some last-minute weekend plans? We've got you covered. Whether you're the artsy type, a beer or wine enthusiast, an adventure seeker, or just straight-up obsessed with goats, there's something here for you. (Hint: There are four opportunities to do goat yoga, so you better freakin' read this!)
First Friday at the Banana Factory (6-9pm/ Free)
On the first Friday of every month, South Bethlehem comes alive for a community celebration. And The Banana Factory Arts Center has a particularly awesome lineup of events for adults and kids, including: hot glass demos, a free mini leather bound journal workshop, jewelry demo, kids' scavenger hunt, and more.
Night Time Zip and Climb at Blue Mountain (7:15-9:15pm/ $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.
Goat Yoga at Hellerick's Family Farm (8am AND 9:30 am/ $30)
We have been waiting for goat yoga for TOO LONG! Just a short drive away to Doylestown, you can experience the fun of goat yoga on a Historic Bucks county farm. Certified Yoga Instructors will guide you through the class amidst the goats (and chickens!). [Note: Two classes are available today and two on Sunday.]
Brew at the Zoo (1 - 4 p.m./ $35)
Cute animals and booze? Yes please. Brew at the Zoo Country Beer Festival features 40 craft beers for sampling, live music by Tim Harakal, lawn games, plus plenty of time to check out your favorite animals, including giraffes Murphy and Tatu, and Bean the sloth! Get your tickets at: lvzoo.org/event/brew-at-the-zoo
Ramen Night at Cafe Frais (6-9pm/ $12-$15 per bowl)
Don't know about you, but we sure can't get enough ramen. So if you find yourself in Allentown's West End Saturday night, be sure to stop by. Bonus: Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available!
More Goat Yoga! (8am AND 9:30am/ $30)
In case you missed it on Saturday, there are two more opportunities to do yoga with your fave farm animal today!
Bikes ’N Brunch in Hellertown (11am -8pm, last bike rental leaves at 4pm/ $35)
1774 Grille & Tap is teaming up with Saucon Valley Bikes to provide you with a picnic lunch and a trail-ready bicycle for $35. Enjoy a 4-hour excursion on on the scenic Saucon Valley Rail Trail, along with a delicious assortment of croissant or baguette sandwiches, wraps, and dessert.
Harvest Weekend on the LV Wine Trail (12-5pm)
The grape harvest is bumpin' this time of year, and the folks at Clover Hill Winery in Breinigsville want to celebrate that with you. Join them this Saturday and Sunday as they team up with The Nesting Box to bring you wine, along with locally produced foods such as cheese, baked goods, and some of the most delicious cage-free eggs you've ever tasted.
