Great Events, Greater Good Barley Creek Brewing Company will host Mady’s Snow Day on August 19 from 1 to 10:30 p.m. in its Pint-Sized Park. The outdoor event is a public celebration in the name of Madyson Brendyl Law, an ambitious girl who inspired others with her commitment to giving back.

Barley Creek’s Pint-Sized Park

This year’s Snow Day is booked full with entertainment and activities for guests of all ages. The stage will host eight musical acts including local favorites, The Maybabies, and activities will include a dunk tank, balloon bounce, mechanical bull, raffles and more. Admission to the event is just $5, and all proceeds go to Mady’s Angels, an organization dedicated to upholding Mady’s charitable efforts. For more information, visit www.barleycreek.com or www.madysangels.org. The Sherman Theater will host the premier of horror film Six Degrees of Hell on August 24 at 7:10 p.m. The production, starring actor Cory Feldman, was filmed locally and created by a Poconos native; schoolteacher turned writer/producer Harrison Smith set much of the film at the reportedly haunted Hotel of Horror in Saylorsburg. The premier will feature a red carpet event and a “meet and greet” with Feldman. Proceeds benefit the United Way of Monroe County. Smith’s breakthrough film, The Fields, was shown at a similar benefit at the Sherman Theater last year. Ticket prices start at $10. For more information, visit www.shermantheater.com or call (570) 420-2808.

The event runs Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and includes a variety of period-specific presentations. Explore the work of artisans and crafters, examine the music of the era with Kent Courtney, Dave Matsinko and Helen Torok, and sample the concessions during a Patriotic Tea at the Sharpe House.

The Majestic Monarch

With wings like stained glass and graceful flight patterns, Monarch butterflies may appear delicate and fragile, but the beautiful creatures brave an annual migration that often spans the country. Monarchs travel farther than any other species of butterfly, up to three thousand miles to the California/Mexico coast every year. Amazingly, the masses of butterflies return to the same winter roosts as their ancestors, often hibernating in the exact same trees. Poconos Naturalists study adult monarchs in late summer and early fall, before they depart from our area. See pg. 23 for information on upcoming Monarch studies in the Poconos.
