The City of Allentown will be hosting its own 4th of July celebration this Sunday from 5:00-10:00 PM at Birney Crum Stadium. The event will feature live music, food options, and a fireworks show beginning at 9:20 PM. (Sunday, July 4th)

2. Or Head to Neighboring Bethlehem, PA for Their Fireworks Display (

Bethlehem Steelstacks will be celebrating Independence Day with their own evening of fun! Fireworks begin at 9:00 PM, or head over early to watch local bands and enjoy multiple food and beverage options.

3. The Great American Blast at Coca-Cola Park (

Kick off the holiday weekend this Saturday at Coca-Cola Park. Watch some amazing fireworks while hanging out at Coca-Cola Park (sorry, no game this weekend). You can even purchase a patio ticket for a 2.5 hour buffet. (Saturday, July 3rd)

4. Visit the Lehigh Valley Zoo for special 4th of July-Themed Events  (

This weekend the zoo has tons of 4th of July-themed events planned around the zoo. Participate in a free themed scavenger hunt, watch Uncle Sam on stilts (July 4th from 10-12), and listen to Al Trump and the Allentown Hobo "Almost" Marching Band (July 4th from 1-3). 

5. Ride the Firefly Express in Kutztown (

This sounds like the cutest event ever, and I was instantly jealous that we're going to be away this weekend when I read about it. Take an evening train ride on the Allentown and Auburn Railroad through Kutztown. Watch the fireflies emerge over the countryside. The train ride includes a stop for ice cream too!
