Looking for something to do this April in NEPA? COVID-19 restrictions may have made it difficult to enjoy this time of year last year, but businesses have adapted and there are more things to do now. April should be full of fun, even if most of it is different from what it used to be. This list includes two farmer’s markets and a variety of other activities. Try and plan something fun to do that you haven’t been able to do in a long time!
