Map: La Festa Italiana
Why Go: Celebration of Italian food and culture. Huge event, three days.
Labor day weekend is here and that means La Festa Italiana in Scranton, Pa.
One thing Scranton does right is throw a party. La Festa is one of the bigger events, taking over the entire downtown for three days of food and culture. Tens of thousands of people visit the three day event that runs August 31st, September 1st and 2nd 2013. Crowds and good food make for a fun time.
2012 La Festa capped off with a Dean Martin impersonator, direct from Las Vegas. This year he’s back on Sunday at 7:30 to wrap up the festival. Not to be missed on Friday a Frank Sinatra tribute and The Poets. Classic Scranton.
Entertainment starts at noon each day and crowds ebb and flow all day long. Fireworks on Sunday night. Here’s link to the schedule for the weekend’s acts. Go get some.
