Sunsets on South Main (or SOMA, for short) is a great way to get explore all that downtown Wilkes-Barre has to offer.

“We invite our entire community to come to the heart of downtown for this free concert and happy hour series and then stay to enjoy dinner at one of our many unique downtown restaurants,” said Susan Magnotta, Director of Marketing and Development at Diamond City Partnership. “Sunsets on SOMA is part of our larger ‘Downtown Rebound’ initiative aimed at bringing life, vitality and vibrancy back to our center city and to support our restaurant and small retail business owners.”
