The city of Pittston is ready for the first art walk on the second Friday of the year

PITTSTON – City Friday Second Friday 2022 returns starting Friday, May 13, one of the largest number of vendors available in a few years. City officials are excited to be returning to the start of the summer season.

Mary Kroptavich, manager of Pittston’s main street, said she was happy that the first of four art walks on the second Friday had finally begun.

It is predicted that 40 vendors will be in line along the main street from 5 to 8 pm, and the long-term weather forecast looks promising, with partly cloudy skies and 81 degrees.

“The art walk this May will be truly the largest number of vendors we’ve ever had,” Kroptavich said.

Along with suppliers, according to Kroptavich, companies in the city center will be opened.

“AH Baby & Co. will have an artist with balloons on hand, Evolve Fitness will offer smoothies and wine tastings inside,” Kroptavich said. “The Art e Fekts Gallery, starting at 7 p.m., will host the Simply Spring High School Art Exhibition, which will award several prizes for their work, and opens Canteen Central with special food.”

A juggler and a street performer on stilts, a belly dancer, henna tattoos will perform, and the band Burn the Jukebox will play on the lower floor of the Tomato Festival. As usual, the music performers will be at Pocket Park, next to Napoli’s Pizza.

Groove Brewery from Scranton will offer its merchandise, as will LBC Distillery, Mucciolo Family Wines.

You will be able to cool off with Handles Ice or taste the many types of popcorn at Pittston Popcorn.

“We would like to thank the main sponsors of Reilly Associates Discover NEPA powered by Mericle and Mucciolo Family Wines for the reinforcement,” Kroptavich said. “Valentine’s Jewelry, Visit Luzerne Co., Paint Pittston Pink and Dr. Eugene DeMinico also contributed financially to our Second Art Walk on Friday. Without our sponsors, we would not have been able to achieve this. ”

Kroptavich said she will announce several new summer events in the next few weeks.

“I am very excited to be returning to the events in the city,” Kroptavich said. “Someone has to wind me up, because every year I come up with more and more ideas to keep in town.”
