The annual Carbondale Pioneer Nights Block Party is underway in Lackawanna County. The event focuses on an incident 40 years ago in Carbondale where a reported alien landed in a silt pond near Russel Park in November 1974.  Along with food and music, they will have events focusing on the decades old event that put world attention on Carbondale.
Pioneer Nights continues through Saturday.
