Founder’s Day Celebration
On June 2, the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor will celebrate how 30 years ago, a group of committed citizens took the region’s case for national historic significance to Congress, and formed the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor!
The celebration of the 30th Anniversary will take place at the Hugh Moore Park in Easton, PA, lasting all day! Admission to the daytime portion of the event is free, with the evening portion of “Founder’s Day” being a ticketed event. Tickets are $100 per person, or $90 per member.
Purchase tickets here, or call 610-923-3548 (ext. 229)
The daytime portion of the event will include food vendors, live music, “mule selfies,” rides on the Josiah White II canal boat, and more! (Boat rides and entry to the National Canal Museum will have admission fees.)
The evening festivities will honor the D&L’s “Heroes, Geniuses and Leaders” of the last three decades and include regional food and drink, more “mule selfies,” a “Then & Now” photography retrospective, silent auction, tented dinner gala, and a live music performance by Craig Thatcher and Nyke Van Wyk!
Sundance Vacations will participate in the Silent Auction with a week-long golf getaway!
During the silent auction, Sundance Vacations will be donating an 8 night/7 day stay for the beautiful Myrtle Beach or Hilton Head, South Carolina, valued at $1,500!
On Sunday, June 3, from 10:00 AM till 11:00 AM Sundance Vacations will also sponsor the “Bike to Brunch” event! This is not a D&L staff-led ride, so you get to choose your own distance, and start at where you would like! We suggest another D&L Trailhead.
Meet at Hugh Moore Park in Easton for brunch and a ride on the mule-drawn Josiah White II canal boat.
Tickets cost $30, and the ticket includes brunch, commemorative t-shirt, one (1) canal boat ride, and admission to the National Canal Museum for that day.
More about the D&L Trail
In 1988, a group of committed citizens took the region’s case for national historic significance to Congress, and formed the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor! The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that preserves the historic pathway that carried coal and iron from Wilkes-Barre to Philadelphia.
The D&L is a 165 mile long trail that stretches from north to south, across five counties and over one hundred municipalities. The full trail is from Wilkes-Barre to Philadelphia and incorporates railroads, canals, rivers and trails! The D&L Trail connects people to nature, culture, communities, recreation and the industrial heritage.
