31st Annual Tomato Festival Gets Underway

PITTSTON — A summertime tradition kicked off Thursday evening in Luzerne County.

The 31st annual Pittston Tomato Festival is underway.  There are all kinds of activities planned for the festival that celebrates the tomato.

The festival hosts Italian food, live entertainment, and a tomato fight on Saturday afternoon.

Many in Pittston believe their tomatoes are some of the best quality because they are grown in soil that is very acidic from the old coal mines.

The Tomato Festival runs through Sunday.
