Lackawanna RiverFest Postponed

SCRANTON -- A popular event celebrating the Lackawanna River scheduled for this weekend has been postponed.

Officials with the Lackawanna River Conservation Association said their annual RiverFest planned for Saturday will be postponed until next week because of high water on the river.

The event, which includes a canoe-a-thon on the river along with festivities at the finish line near the river in Scranton, will now be held on Saturday, May 20.

You can keep an eye on river levels here.

    Yeah, “high water”. Nothing to do with the stench of raw sewage that permeates the entire river corridor. You couldn’t pay me to get in that swill.
