PITTSTON, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A popular festival in Luzerne County is getting ready for its big 4-day event. The Pittston Tomato Festival is back this week after a year off due to the COVID pandemic.
The event kicks off this Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and lasts through the weekend until Sunday.
There will be live music, a parade, a 5K run, rides, games and of course, homegrown Pittston tomatoes.
“I can’t even say I’m excited, I’m ecstatic because I’ve always gone to the tomato festival. I’ve actually performed here a few times with my band. The entertainment is wonderful. The outcoming from everybody from New york. It really attracts everyone,” Dianne Luke, from Pittston.
Over 75,000 people are expected to attend the event this weekend.
