The La Festa tents are up; the weather is set to be beautiful; and the Democratic vice-presidential nominee is on his way – it’s shaping up to be a great Labor Day weekend in Downtown Scranton.

La Festa LogoAs if all of the food, music and fun involved with the three-day La Festa Italiana festival weren’t enough to bring you downtown this holiday weekend, you can look forward to a visit by native son Joe Biden on Monday and the opening of Scranton’s new wine bar, Dionysus Downtown, at 244 Penn Ave.
