Sunday was an overcast day, but the rains held off long enough for people to come in droves for the second day of the sixth annual PA Bacon Fest, a weekend-long celebration of all things pork in and around Easton’s Centre Square.
PA Bacon Fest has announced its highly-anticipated live music lineup for this year’s festival, which will take place in downtown Easton this Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 4-5, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Many local favorites are slated to play the festival, a celebration of nature’s true candy: bacon. While this lineup is not 100 percent complete, it’s most of the way there, and should give you an idea of what to expect.
Now, without any further delay…
Easton’s Riverside Festival of the Arts takes place this weekend, September 16 and 17, at Scott and Riverside Parks along the Delaware and Lehigh River meeting in Easton. The festival “celebrates the colorful and creative spirit of Easton” by providing free visual, literary, and performing arts programming throughout the weekend.
Below, we have a full itinerary for both parks throughout the weekend. Those looking for more updates and information can find it here on Facebook.
Just when you thought we were out of Musikfest content, it turns out that we have more photos for your viewing pleasure.
Dark clouds were again looming over Bethlehem when I got back into town from visiting my brand new niece and going to my friend’s engagement party. It was around 5 p.m., and I wanted to make sure I got to Musikfest before the rains inevitably hit.
Lo and behold, Mother Nature gave us a reprieve this time.
