LV Zoo Winter Light Spectacular webLet it snow, let it snow, let it snow! This chant may be more appropriate for kids who don't yet understand snow shovels, snow tires, and snow blowers — only snow days, snowball fights, and snowmen. Whether or not you are a fan of winter, it's holiday time, and there are plenty of things to do when you're bundled up and the grandkids are around. Here are some local choices to help warm up the holiday season.


Winter Light Spectacular The Lehigh Valley’s favorite holiday tradition is set to return to the Lehigh Valley Zoo for another year of cheer! Featured in USA Today and containing over 1.2 million twinkling lights and breathtaking holiday displays, Winter Light Spectacular, presented by Service Electric and sponsored by T-Mobile, returns for the 2021 holiday season beginning November 12 with tons of safe holiday fun for the whole family!
Christkindlmarkt, presented by Univest Financial®, is a one-of-a-kind family event that celebrates the spirit of the season in Bethlehem. Twice recognized as one of the best holiday markets in the U.S. by Travel + Leisure, this heart-warming holiday event features handmade works by some of the nation’s finest artisans. Enjoy the ring-ting-tingling sounds of live Christmas music and jolly, old St. Nick’s hearty laughter. Visit Käthe Wohlfahrt, offering handmade ornaments, nutcrackers, and collectibles from Germany.
Christkindlmarkt begins on Friday, November 19, and runs weekends until December 19.
The Liberty Bell Museum will start its holiday season with the return of two twentieth-century Lehigh Valley traditions begun by Hess’s department store. Pip the Mouse returns in the classic puppet show, “Pip: The Mouse Before Christmas,” alongside the Little Shoppers Village. Since 1962, Pip’s adventures in “Pip: The Mouse Before Christmas,” have delighted audiences of the young at heart and joyful in spirit regardless of age. Pip returns to the Liberty Bell Museum on Friday, November 26, 2021, for another Christmas season. Shows will run daily, Mondays through Saturdays, and Sunday, December 12 at 12:30, 1:30, and 2:30 PM. The last show of the season will be held on New Year’s Eve Day.
Little Shoppers Village is a place meant for children and grandchildren to experience the joy of shopping for their family members. Prices on items range from $1 – $4, and with the help of the museum’s “elves,” children can buy personalized gifts for their family members. The Little Shoppers Village will be open from Friday, November 26 – Sunday November 28, and Saturday, December 4, from 12 – 4 PM.
Family fun is the name of the game at PEEPSFEST®, the annual two-day New Year’s Eve festival celebrating the fun and excitement of the PEEPS® Brand at the iconic SteelStacks in Bethlehem, PA. Each year, fans arrive from all over the country to enjoy family-friendly activities and marvel at the PEEPS® Chick Drop — a 4-feet, 9-inches tall, 400-pound lit PEEPS® Chick that descends on Dec. 31 to commemorate the beginning of an exciting new year. You can find more information, and watch PEEPSFEST: Zany New Year's Traditions From Across the Globe! at
