Insights and advice about jobs and hiring in the Lehigh Valley.

Fall Fun in the Lehigh Valley

Summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end. Vacation season is wrapping up and the kids are headed back to school soon, which means fall is just around the corner.

If you’re searching for events in Lehigh Valley, PA, prepare to make some hard choices. There’s so many exciting things going on every day, it’s impossible not to get a case of serious FOMO — i.e., fear of missing out.

Life gets busy, and at HTSS, Inc., we certainly understand that, but you have to make time to enjoy the amazing area we live in. Every season brings fun activities that allow you to make lasting memories with family and friends.

September hasn’t arrived just yet, but it’s never too early to see what’s in store for next month, and start making plans. Here’s three of our favorite September activities. We’ll certainly be at these events, and we hope you’ll take part in them too.

Apple Days

Nothing is more fall than an apple festival. Held at Burnside Plantation in Bethlehem on September 7-8, the 6th Annual Apple Days offers fun for the whole family. Enjoy apple bobbing, cooking and colonial demonstrations, musical performances, mouth-watering apple desserts, kids’ games and more.


The pierogi is a Pennsylvania classic, so it’s only natural there’s an entire festival dedicated to it. Held on September 14 at the Bethlehem SteelStacks, PierogiFest — presented by Clubhouse Grille — is your chance to sample a dozen varieties of pierogis. Some of the menu offerings include sautéed taco pierogis, brisket pierogis, vegetarian sautéed caprese pierogis and apple pie pierogis.

Allentown ArtsFest

Presented by the Alternative Gallery, Allentown ArtsFest takes place at Cedar Beach Park from September 27-29. Enjoy three stages of ongoing local music, plenty of kids’ activities, a skate park, giant graffiti murals, comedy and improv sets, breakdancing competitions, works by local artists, tasty local food, craft beer and wine.

CEO Letter

As a staffing and recruitment professional for over  30 years, I have seen many changes in the industry. Over that time, I’ve witnessed a transformation in the way organizations view staffing services. Today, we see more and more companies using staffing services as a strategic tool, rather than just for temporary fill-ins.

At HTSS, Inc., our focus is on helping companies create proactive workforce plans. Our goal is to help our clients use staffing strategically to increase capacity, overcome hiring freezes, access specialized talent, better manage increased workloads, and enhance overall productivity.

For our candidates, we help to uncover truly rewarding job opportunities—jobs that are a match to each candidate’s skills, and jobs that offer key experience and growth potential.

We look forward to strengthening our relationships with our current clients and candidates, as well as forming new and exciting partnerships in the future.
