It can be frustrating to plan a weekend of fun when there’s the chance of rain, or as the weather sources say, “25%” or “40%” (what’s that supposed to mean??). If you are scrambling find something to do this weekend, thankfully there are plenty of rain or shine events in Bucks County, including a big blueberry festival. That’s something you don’t want to miss; these berries won’t be around for much longer!
