Fall Brings Us More Than Pumpkin Spice and Riding Boots

So I have finally began to accept that Fall is actually coming and we must bid farewell to these long summer nights. Autumn brings us the changing of leaves, new fashion and my personal favorite, Halloween! There are so many events going on that puts my summer schedule to shame! I am here to bring you all that NEPA has to offer this fall so let’s start with the here and now!

A lot of people like to post amazing pictures of these great events. The problem with posting pictures of events means that, well… the event is over. So instead I want to give everyone some weekend fun options, here are some of my favorites in September!


Luzerne County Fair

September 9th to 13th

Why Should You Go?

“We are 100% volunteer and work tirelessly to bring an affordable, exciting and educational event to fairgoers and the community.

Culture Shock! Free Music and Art Fest

September 19th 12:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Nay Aug Park

Why Should You Go?

“Culture Shock has two main purposes – showcase the immense talent in our area, and culturally enhance our community.We decided to call it Culture Shock because it’s a vast mix of different styles of music, culture and art.  Our hope is that you’ll hear music from a genre that you might not have known you even liked, or see a cool piece of artwork in a style you’ve never heard of before – all while showcasing the creativity that lives in the place we call home.”

Third Friday features a variety of cultural events found in the city’s galleries, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, and other small businesses. A trolley bus is available to provide shuttle service at designated stops.

All of these are unified under the vision of using the arts to revitalize downtown Wilkes-Barre.

Bloomsburg Fair

Bloomsburg (Duh!)

Why Should You Go?

The Bloomsburg Fair is a great tradition that is felt by those who attend regularly and without fail. From the food, to the animals, to the rides there is so much to see and do at the Fair. Bingo is obviously the first thing I do, while I’m eating my Mr. Sticky bun. There are many concerts, band shows, rides, games, horse races, and demolition derbies at the Fair to be enjoyed by all. “The bottom line is that the Fair means home and a sense of pride felt by those who put our hearts and souls into making it wonderful year after year.”
