I guess the old saying "time flies when you're having fun" holds true because the summer season is moving right along in the Pocono Mountains! I can't believe that the Fourth of July weekend is upon us!
If you enjoy gazing at fantastic fireworks displays as much as I do, you're in for a real treat! It doesn't matter where you are in the Pocono Mountains, because there is sure to be a dazzling display near by.
Here are a few ideas of places to go to see some of the area's brilliant, beautiful fireworks.
Shawnee Mountain Ski Area will be hosting their annual display on Saturday, 7- 10pm with a rain date of Sunday. Admission to attend is $10.00 per car load. There will also be lots of other fun things taking place, including a magic show. The fireworks begin to boom at dusk.
The town of Honesdale will begin their celebration at 5:30pm on Saturday, in Central Park with music, games and food. The fireworks are set to sizzle at dusk. A rain date has been scheduled for Tuesday, July 6.
Memorial Park in Jim Thorpe will be holding their holiday celebration on Saturday, with a rain date on Sunday. The festivities will begin at 10am and will include a variety of food vendors, music, games and much more! The phenomenal fireworks display begins at 10pm.
Mount Airy Casino Resort is inviting everyone to attend their colorful display on Sunday, at 9:30pm. It may be a good idea to arrive early and secure your spot. You may also want to bring a blanket or lawn chair for your comfort. There is absolutely no admission fee!
Lake Wallenpaupack will be alive with a vibrant spectacular display on Sunday, beginning at 9:15pm. The display will be fired near the Wallenpaupack High School. Parking will be available in the High School's parking lots. You will be able to have a great view from a variety of places including the school's bleachers, or perhaps you may want to take your boat out on the lake and watch from the water. A rain date has been set for Monday, July 5.
I am hoping to catch as many celebrations and fireworks displays as possible! For more information on sensational summer activities and seasonal celebrations check out our calendar of events!
