Picture This: Hazleton FunFest

Hazleton Says “Aloha” to a Weekend of Family Fun

This weekend, we visited FunFest, an annual street fair in Hazleton. The festival featured food, vendors, live music and family activities along Broad Street.

FunFest kicked off on Saturday, September 7 with a car show, animal shows and local music. Artists decorated the city streets during Peace, Love, and Chalk, a juried chalk art competition.

The festival continued on Sunday, September 8 with an enormous parade. Floats, fire trucks, marching bands and giant balloons made their way through the streets.

This year’s festival had a luau theme, so it was the perfect way to squeeze in a little more summer fun. Parrotbeach, a Jimmy Buffett tribute band, set the mood with some island tunes. There was even a sandy beach area at the CAN DO City Park where people could build castles and relax in the sun.
