UPCOMING LOCAL EVENTS:
Jun 29: Gretchen Wilson at Penn's Peak (Jim Thorpe)
8pm. To all appearances, Gretchen Wilson went from talented obscurity to phenomenon overnight. Her meteoric rise, the kind experienced by only a handful of artists in the past few decades, was that rare instance where talent and moment met to form a cultural tidal wave.
Jul 13-Jul 14: Palmerton Spartan Race (Blue Mountain)
Saturday: Super, the middle distance course. With a longer distance than the Sprint and more obstacles, the Super will test your endurance, perseverance, and grit. The eight plus mile Super packs more than 25 Signature Spartan Obstacles through tougher and more rugged terrain. Sunday: Sprint, the shortest distance (3 miles). It is perfect for athletes of all levels; from Spartan first timers to seasoned racers.
Jul 26: Roots & Boots Tour: Sammy Kershaw, Collin Raye and Aaron Tippin (Jim Thorpe)
Penn's Peak, 8pm. Tippin has crusaded for the working man and woman since he ripped country music wide open.
