It has been a tough 2 weeks for me to blog about experiences in Lehigh Valley. I have devoted much of my resources and energy into closing down the Spectrum in Philadelphia.

It started with Bruce last week and will conclude with Pearl Jam on Friday and Saturday. Saturday, I might actually be at the biggest Halloween party in the country. There is going to be tens of thousands of people tailgating for Pearl Jam and the Phillies game. There are going to be some great costumes in the parking lot. I think this is the 3rd consecutive week I have mentioned these Spectrum shows. Can you tell I am excited? This is like Christmas for me, not Halloween.

Since the Lehigh Valley experience well is dry. I have put together some Lehigh Valley Halloween activities that don’t involve a bar, a lame DJ, or cover band.

On Saturday, Easton has its 17th Annual Scarecrow Fest. I have never been to the Scarecrow Fest, but for 10 bucks you get all the basics to build a scarecrow. Sounds like a good family thing to me.

Another good family event is going on at the Lehigh Valley Zoo. It is called Boo at the Zoo. You can go trick-or-treating around the zoo Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Finally, Allentown has its Halloween Parade 2 p.m. Sunday.

Happy Halloween!
