Top Stories

SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Crowds packed Courthouse Square in Scranton for the second-to-last day of La Festa Italiana.

It is a true celebration of Italian heritage. Sunday night Chris DiMattio had people dancing in the street with his Frank Sinatra tribute.

Continuous live music played throughout the event on multiple stages. And at least 70 vendors lined the square. As the people who’ve been coming for decades tell Eyewitness News: it’s all about the food!

“Carmella’s for the pastries of course…I try to try everybody’s pizza and then the porketta sandwich is a must,” Scott Brighton of Scranton said.

“Funnel cake, pizza frittes and sausage and pepper sandwiches… And the ice cream,” Tom Murray of Scranton said.

A fireworks display closed out Day Three of La Festa, just before the rain. You can still attend the festival all day Monday.
