CENTER VALLEY, Pennsylvania – Move over, flowers and chocolate. The Lehigh Valley hosts very special and unique Valentine’s Day celebrations.
This year marked a romantic night for several couples at the Saucon Valley Promenade Shops, complete with a horse-drawn carriage ride. Jessica Ramos and Justin Reed say it hit the spot for their night to remember.
“It’s different. It’s COVID-friendly. And it’s romantic,” Jessica said.
“It’s easy to stay home. And we’ve certainly loved coming home since we moved here, but it’s definitely a good reason to get out and, you know, change a bit and create another remember because that’s what lasts,” Justin said.
Jess Ofner and husband Ryan say it helps keep their 19-year marriage strong.
“I loved it. I’ve always wanted to take a carriage ride with a bucket list. So you gotta do it,” Jess said.
“Good communication and you know, cross things off your spouse’s to-do list,” Ryan said.
A few hours earlier, it was another surprise.
Wilson Area High School teacher Ashley White was stunned when IronPigs Pork Racer Hambone surprised her after school.
“I said, ‘oh wow look at this, there’s a Pork-O-Gram and that would be hilarious.’ He had to do it and here we are!” said White.
Hambone made multiple stops across Lehigh County, serving up smiles with his Pork-O-Grams.
It wasn’t just for couples. Dad-daughter duo Mike and Mya have a special bond. A surprise delivery brought tears to the Freedom High School senior.
“It was worth it. I expected this to happen. She’s my number one, I do anything for her,” Mike said.
