Pittston Riverfest

Saturday, September 14, 2019

Every year the rich history of the Greater Pittston area is celebrated at the annual Pittston Riverfest held at the city’s Riverfront Park. Hosted by our friends at the the Greater Pittston Cultural Coalition, Riverfest features a variety of activities ranging from entertainment and vendors to hayrides and historical demonstrations. Visitors enjoyed modern and old-style craft displays and demonstrations, historical exhibits showcasing area historical icons, entertainment, kids’ arts projects, free hay rides to the Knox Mine and more.

Displays included Native American artifacts from times well before the immigrants flooded the Pittston area to work in the mines and tool and craftwork methods actually performed by folks in period attire that dated back to Colonial times.

Viewers can watch the “ring of fire” maintenance technique that used keep the trains moving.
