SCRANTON -- A celebration of Lackawanna County's industrial past wrapped up Sunday.

People gathered at the historic Scranton Iron Furnaces on Cedar Avenue for the Arts on Fire Industrial Arts festival.

There were artists, metal workers, vendors, live music, food, crafts and more at the free festival.  A fundraiser was held Friday at the site.

Organizers say the event is about Scranton's history as an industrial city.

"The site itself is so integral to Scranton's history and I think too, it's a bridge for communities," said organizer Nikki Moser.  "It's a bridge for the art community, musicians, artisans.  I mean, you see a lot of different people coming together to make an event, festival that has a lot to do with Scranton's history, and is about its future, really."
