NEPA Weekend Round-Up 06.08.18

This weekend is full of events for fitness buffs, foodies, and even four-legged friends!

 

Lace up your sneakers! There are plenty of opportunities to stay active this weekend. Grab your board and stop by the grand opening of Keystone Rampworks, Wilkes-Barre’s new indoor skate park. If you’re ready to log a few miles, take a riverside run on Saturday at the PurpleStride Northeastern PA 5K. On Sunday, hit the trails at Montage Mountain’s Black Diamond Running Series 5K.

The calendar is jam-packed with food festivals, so bring your appetite. It all starts Friday at noon with the Edwardsville Pierogi Festival. Stop by to celebrate NEPA’s favorite potato-and-cheese-stuffed snack. Later in the evening, check out Food Truck Friday at Creekside Gardens. On Friday and Saturday, get your fill of gyros and moussaka at the annual Greek Food Festival in Scranton.

Your canine companions can join the fun too! Bring your dog to Maiolatesi Winery’s Pittie Palooza Festival on Saturday at noon. Live music and wine are even better when you can enjoy them with your pup.
