No need to wait until the weekend for live concerts and new art exhibits.

The Fabulous Fables program will include Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, and Aesop’s Fables by local composer and music teacher Scott Watson of the Parkland School District, narrated by Emile Guida, as well as selections from The Lion King.
While the Astrophotography exhibit at Michener Museum doesn’t open until this Saturday, November 8, 2014, two new related exhibits are currently on display at the Allentown Art Museum, American Pop! The Prints, and Robert Indiana: From A-Z.
Wait Until Dark, a mystery thriller of a play, opens Friday night, Novmeber 7th, at DCP Theater in Telford. If you’d rather stay in the Valley on Friday night, or take the stage yourself, head over to the Open Mic at Java Good Day Cafe, 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.; Performers of all abilities and instruments are welcome, including poetry and prose reading. And of course, an audience in the house is needed. Sign-ups start at 6:30 p.m. and acts are presented on a first come, first serve basis. 231 Main Street, East Greenville, PA
The Hereford Elementary Holiday Bazaar is this Saturday, November 8th, from 9-3 and another craft and vendor show is on the calendar for Sunday afternoon, November 9th, at the East Greenville Fire House. More details on these, and future craft fairs, here.
And try not to miss this year’s Baconfest, bigger and better than ever, right on Main Street (the lawn outside St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, Pennsburg, and Upper Perk Community Life Center, just down the block). Enjoy the amazing food creations, the new bacon games (?!), the live music, and if you are feeling really creative, enter your own bacon enhanced food (you may register to compete as late as the morning of the event!). The fun starts at 1 p.m. and, sadly, ends at 4 p.m.
