Peepsfest Dec. 30 and 31

Special to The Press

For those of you who attended the Salisbury Elementary School winter concert Dec. 21, wasn’t it fantastic? It was so refreshing to see all the kids together on stage and it is hard to believe it has been three years since we last had a concert like that. Kudos to director Stan Griffis for putting this together. The kids sounded great, the motions were terrific and the song selection was spot on. I loved it!

If you were not able to see the concert in person, a message was sent to each family on Thrillshare with a link to watch the recording of the show. I highly recommend it.

How are you ringing in the new year? Allentown and Bethlehem both have celebrations planned.

Downtown Allentown is having a New Year’s Eve fireworks celebration at the Allentown Arts Park, 24-32 N. Fifth St., Allentown. Festivities start 9 p.m. with a musical performance by The Audio Files and dancing entertainment by Ely Dance Studio leading up to midnight. Downtown restaurants will also have New Year’s specials and events.

Bethlehem will celebrate its 14th annual two-day Peepsfest Dec. 30 and 31. The festivities begin with a family run/walk 1:30 p.m. Dec. 30. During the two-day celebration there will be food, music, crafts, games and a special event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Peep. The event culminates with fireworks and the midnight drop of the 4-foot, 9-inch tall, 400-pound Peep Chick. For more information and pricing, visit steelstacks.org.

As a reminder, schools are closed for the holiday and classes will resume Jan. 3, 2023.

The next T-shirt day at Salisbury Elementary School is Jan. 13, 2023.
