Magician Mark Mysterrio, from East Stroudsburg, was on hand to delight and charm children, parents or anyone looking for a fun event at the Centennial Stage at the recent Great Allentown Fair.

The world record holder for the longest time spent on a bed of nails, 283 hours, 5 minutes, used volunteers from the audience to perform his sleight of hand magic with the help of “Miss Direction,” his aide-de-camp and cheerleader.
