Get Ready for a Summer Adventure on the Lehigh River

COURTESY OF GUEST BLOGGER, GARY BLOCKUS. 

CLICK HERE to learn more about the Lehigh River Sojourn.


For the first time in about 10 years, the Lehigh River Sojourn will wind its way through the heart of Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton.
 
The 20th Annual Lehigh River Sojourn, scheduled for June 25-29, will truly be a celebration of the Lehigh Valley and the river that runs through it.

To appropriately commemorate the 20th anniversary of the on-the-water journey that raises awareness about the Lehigh River and its connection to the people, landscape, ecology and economy of the Lehigh Valley, the sojourn has been expanded from its most recent three-day trip to a five-day extravaganza that reincorporates the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton portion of the canoe and kayak voyage.
 
This annual adventure draws paddling enthusiasts from all over the country as well as local paddlers and newbies looking for a safe venture into the world of canoeing and kayaking. Participants can choose to take part in any one, combination of, or all five days of the event where you’re fed three meals a day and led by an experienced, certified safety crew on the water.
 
From the opening day of whitewater rafting through the Lehigh Gorge above Jim Thorpe to the canoeing and kayaking from Jim Thorpe to just shy of the Delaware River, the 20th Annual Lehigh River Sojourn promises to be a journey filled with fun, great food, camping, educational programs and evening concerts open to the public.

Get out your calendars because Steve Brosky Big Lil’ Band will have a river jam at the American Legion in Hokendauqua on Monday, June 27, and the Large Flowerheads are playing at the Levitt Pavilion at ArtsQuest in Bethlehem ton Tuesday, June 27 to celebrate the revitalization of the former Bethlehem Steel site.
 
On the Saturday, June 25, the opening night of the Sojourn, The Bee’s Knees will play at Josiah White Park in Jim Thorpe, and the ever-popular Matt Miskie will play the following night at the Walnutport Canal Association building.
 
We’re hoping these special free concerts will draw the public and help raise awareness of the Lehigh River and its importance to our community.
