Have you ever watched a sheep get shorn? Here’s your chance. It’s just one of the many things to do this weekend in Pennsylvania’s Americana Region. We’ve put together a few of the many activities available to you across Berks County. The options are varied, fun, and interesting and it’s just the tip of the iceberg. VisitPaAmericana.com is your source for events happening across our region all year long.
Food Truck Fridays

Classic Harley Davidson
Start the weekend with some of the best Food Truck fare around at Classic Harley-Davidson. The dealership hosts the event each Friday evening through October 26th.

Fightin Phils vs. New Hampshire
7:05 – 08:05 pm
It’s a great night for a baseball game. Ok, so you’ll need a jacket, maybe a blanket too, but an evening at FirstEnergy is never dull. In addition to exciting Fightin Phils baseball, you can count on non-stop entertainment as well as tasty, stadium foods.
Fiber and Sheep Day
