HUGHESTOWN -- Folks came together for music and Meals on Wheels in Luzerne County today.

The second annual Peculiar Music Festival was held all day Saturday at the Hughestown Fire Department. The Peculiar Culinary Company teamed up with the firefighters to put together the festival to raise money for the Pittston area Meals on Wheels foundation.

The Hughestown Fire Department did their own fundraising with a beer tent.

"We wanted to incorporate amazing food, amazing music, support local bands, support local businesses, and raise money for a great cause," said organizer Eugene Philbin.

The Peculiar Music Festival raised more than $3,000 last year to clean up parks in Pittston.
