According to reports, fall foliage in Eastern Pennsylvania will reach its peak over the next week or so.

Few areas celebrate the fall colors as much as Jim Thorpe, which is hosting "Fall Foliage Weekends" for four weekends, beginning today.

The event is sponsored by the Jim Thorpe Area Chamber of Commerce.

Dan Hugos, president of the chamber, said there is a schedule of free music that will take place at various venues up and down Broadway.

Special emphasis this year is being placed on spreading out the familiar crowds and giving them more things to do and more reasons to explore other parts of town, in addition to the area around Josiah White Park.

Always a big hit are the train rides which transport passengers into the Lehigh Gorge. Some other scenic trips also are being offered.
