October is here, and it’s one of the best months to live in our local area. If you’re looking for things to do in Lehigh Valley, PA, with your family and friends, you’ll find no shortage of activities.
The leaves are changing color, the days are getting shorter, and the temperatures are falling, meaning its pumpkin patch season — but that’s not all. Seasonal activities are a special way to celebrate fall, so take advantage of all the Lehigh Valley has to offer.
Here at HTSS, Inc., our calendars are packed with fall activities this October. Here’s where we’ll be spending our weekends. We hope you enjoy these events too!
