Labor Day means different things to everyone, but I’m sure everyone can agree that an extended weekend is the perfect way to start winding down the Summer season. Whether you want to use the weekend to relax and take your mind off work or you want to get outdoors and experience some of the events the Lehigh Valley has to offer, never forget the reason we have this 3-day weekend – to pay tribute to working men and women.
Here’s a look at just some of the ways you can spend Labor Day weekend in the Lehigh Valley:
The Great Allentown Fair – Aug. 27 – Sept. 2. Returning for its 161st year, this fair has become a Lehigh Valley signature event that signals the closing of summer and the start of a new fall season. This isn’t your typical fair with a few rides, games, and carnival food; it is SO MUCH MORE!
