get your merry on

There’s no need to worry about vendor shortages and delivery dates when you shop Berks County’s Main Streets. Penn Avenue, West Reading, offers a great starting point with its Holiday Glow Celebration. The three weekends before Christmas, stores along the avenue invite shoppers to enjoy music, carriage rides, Santa visits, merchant specials, and extended store hours. Boyertown’s Annual Chillin’ on Main provides a fun-filled way to get acquainted with the unique shops and vendors that line Philadelphia Avenue. To the north of Reading, the Hamburg’s Strand Theatre is screening well-loved Christmas movies. Purchase tickets for your favorite feature in advance, then shop the stores that dot 4th Street and State Street before the show.

Just in time for the holidays, the GoggleWorks Handcrafted Holiday Market is your source for artisan gifts. Shop the wares of amazing juried artists and makers at the free holiday market while enjoying food, music, kids’ programs, and demonstrations. Eat, drink, and shop at Reading Liederkranz’s traditional Christkindlmart, a celebration and shopping event rolled into one. More event ideas are just a click away.

see your breath, then catch it

Don’t let a drop in temperature keep you from your favorite outdoor adventures? Never! We simply bundle up before hitting local trails, lakes, or roads. Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, Blue Marsh Lake, French Creek State Park, Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site and Berks County Parks stay open year-round for walks and hikes. You’ll find fly fishermen enjoying the sport throughout the year at places like the Tulpehocken Creek. When snow falls, many of these local parks and rec areas are perfect for cross country skiing, snowshoeing and ice fishing fun. And there’s nothing like the snow covered ground for freewheeling down a mountain trail on a bike. Snow tubing and snowboarding and skiing enthusiasts head to nearby Bear Creek Mountain Resort for hours of thrills and spills or just sit by the fire with a glass of your favorite beverage. If your curious enough join us and feel the wind on your face, steam rising off the top of your head; or just breathing in fresh, cold air.  We have what your adrenaline demands. Come and join our reindeer games!
