Muhlenberg Summer Festival

Lehigh Valley Hospital-Muhlenberg’s 45th annual Muhlenberg Summer Festival runs today through Saturday at the Schoenersville Road, Bethlehem, campus. The festival is a fund-raiser that has brought in more than $2.1 million since it started, a news release says.

Last year’s event raised $70,000 that was used to buy several pieces of equipment, such as two new trauma stretchers, six patient transport chairs and “code blue” carts to treat patients in cardiac arrest.

The four-day festival kicks off at 5 tonight (Wednesday 8/16) and features kids’ activities, rides, entertainment, food and arts and crafts exhibitors. Hours are 5 to 10:30 p.m. through Friday and noon to 10:30 p.m. Saturday. Get directions here.
