Lebanese Heritage Festival Draws Big Crowds in Scranton

SCRANTON -- The St. Ann Maronite Church held its 22nd annual Lebanese Heritage Festival in west Scranton on Sunday.

For more than two decades, the festival has attracted hundreds of people from northeastern Pennsylvania to experience the Lebanese culture.

"It's a principle fundraiser for the parish. It's also a cultural event. It's also a chance for the parish organizations to work together and create community, and it's a way for us to showcase the Lebanese food, the Lebanese Christian culture, to the rest of the community," said Msgr. Francis Marini, Saint Ann Maronite Church.

Traditional Lebanese pastries, Turkish coffee, and more were featured at the event in Scranton.
