Saturday Morning at the Steel Stacks

The Bethlehem Steel Stacks are an imposing structure on the skyline of south Bethlehem. Once producing the second largest amount of steel in the country (behind Pittsburgh) they are now the backdrop to a dynamic arts, cultural and education campus on 4.5 acres of former Bethlehem Steel land.

Ever the sleuth of local events for EJ to attend, my mom discovered Peas and Q's, a Saturday morning program held every week in the Arts Quest building. This week the children enjoyed an excerpt of a local production of Stuart Little.

They were given mouse detective badges and helped track down Stuart and Margalo. They climbed into washing machines, interviewed Snowball the cat, rowed a canoe, and went ice skating together. EJ loved the pretending!

An added benefit is the farmer's market held at the same time in the building. We enjoyed a spinach pesto muffin while EJ explored the park outside.

Next week starts the Passport Series where the kids will get to visit Ireland!
