Boat Rides

The Friends of Lake Afton will hold boat rides on Lake Afton from 12 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 13 in conjunction with 2nd Saturday.

YARDLEY BOROUGH >> Downtown Yardley will host 2nd Saturday Yardley with a #SpringIntoYardley theme, sponsored by Barroso’s Landscaping & Tree Service and held in celebration of the arrival of spring.

Downtown businesses and the Friends of Lake Afton will be sharing a variety of spring-related experiences, specials, and even chances to win great prizes on April 13. Visitors can get a free professional family photo, take some boat rides on iconic Lake Afton, sample treats, snacks, champagne and fine egg-shaped chocolates, order special spring-inspired drinks and cuisine on outdoor patios, meet some artists up close, find some great deals, and catch live music indoors and outside, all within walking distance in Yardley’s eclectic and vibrant downtown.

All told, participants can take advantage of an array of fun things to do, see, and win along with enjoying some #SpringIntoYardley specials in 14 different downtown businesses.

“Now that spring has sprung, coming downtown for 2nd Saturday to take in our casual and fun small-town feel on hopefully a beautiful day is just the way to celebrate the new season,” David Applebaum, the treasurer of Experience Yardley said. “As a resident it’s great to be able to just stay in town, walk to Main Street and know that I and my family can find something cool to do all day long!”

The event is happening on Saturday, April 13 from 9 a.m. to Midnight in downtown Yardley, with businesses and organizations hosting a variety of experiences at different times during the day. The full schedule of the #SpringInoYardley 2nd Saturday Yardley event can be found at 2ndSaturdayYardley on Facebook as well as on posters all over downtown Yardley.

2nd Saturday Yardley, run by Experience Yardley, started in November 2017 and has occurred every month since then.

“We love when the springtime comes,” Ivan Barroso, owner of Burritos Yardley noted, “the restaurants put all their tables outside, couples and families are strolling the sidewalks, and our little town’s vibe really starts taking off. We love being part of the great feeling of community in Yardley, and the warmer weather doesn’t hurt either!”
