Labor Day is upon us and for most of us it marks the unofficial end of summer, but it also means an annual tradition is about to begin. On Sept 5th, 6th and 7th, La Festa Italiana will setup on Courthouse Square in downtown Scranton.
Over 60 vendors will line the streets for this three day block party, offering up some of the best Italian fare this side of the Atlantic.
There will also be continuous entertainment provided by over 25 local music and dance groups on various stages around the square.
Also available this year is a shuttle from La Festa to the Steamtown National Historic Site where they will be holding Lackawanna Railfest on Sept 5th and 6th. Using the theme of “The 1940s” the event will take visitors on some behind-the-scenes tours and special excursions out on the rails. A full schedule of events can be found at their official site.
Hours for La Festa Italiana are noon to 11pm on Saturday and Sunday, and noon to 9pm on Monday. If you are planning to attend I recommend checking local weather reports as this is an outdoor event.
