Celebrate May in Honesdale

May 21, 2014

HONESDALE, PA — Kick off your summer at historic Honesdale’s Celebrate May on Saturday, May 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This event is brought to you by the Greater Honesdale Partnership (GHP), with support from Wayne County Tourism.

Many events will occur throughout the day. The Wayne County Historical Society museum will host two dramatic presentations of “A Miner’s Tale” about the anthracite coal miners of the area, given by Robert Hughes. The first will be at 11 a.m. and the second at 2 p.m. The cost is $5 per person which will also include entrance to the museum. Seating is limited.

Craft vendors will line Main Street. Visitors can enjoy the Wayne County Farmer’s Market from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. located in front of Dave’s Super Duper. It features fresh, locally grown produce, flowers, plants, herbs, homemade baked goods, jewelry, and more locally made items.

Music with DJ Tom Emanski will start at 11 a.m. under the Fred Miller Pavilion on Main Street. Be sure to stop by the GHP booth on Main St. in front of the HNB Corporate Center and learn about geocaching. Then grab your GPS or phone with GPS and get out in the fresh air. Check out for more information.
May celebrates Mother’s Day, Nurses Week, and many graduations. As a special treat, the first 100 mothers, May birthdays, nurses, EMTs or May graduates stopping in at Honesdale Greenhouse Flowers, 524 Main Street, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. will receive a free flower.

The seventh annual “Airing of the Quilts” sponsored by A Stitch In Time is sure to bring color to Honesdale’s Main Street and Church Street as over 30 handcrafted quilts are displayed. There will be a yard sale around Central Park, brought to you by the First Presbyterian Church.
