Lehighton's famous Persian doughnut will soon be a thing of the past.
A "Persian Doughnut Retirement Party" is scheduled for Sunday, February 10 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lehighton Bakery – located at 158 South First St. in the borough.
"In order to guarantee that they will get the doughnuts, we recommend that people pre-order the Persians for that day," said Pam Gothard. "When the doughnuts are gone, they're gone. We won't be baking any more of them."
Only Persian doughnuts will be available for purchase.
