‘Cheers To Spring Wine Festival’ Helps Area Children’s Programs

An event in Lackawanna County that’s designed to give kids something constructive to do throughout the year is about to get underway in our area.

Ironically, this event that supports children’s programs in the Clarks Summit area is for adults only.

It all ties into the second annual “Cheers To Spring Wine Festival” in South Abington Township.

The wine festival is organized by the Abington Heights Civic League.  The nonprofit puts the money raised back into community programs throughout Lackawanna County.  Many of those programs benefit kids including an area fishing derby.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey highlighted the wine festival  on Wednesday morning.

It takes place this Saturday, April 28, from Noon - 5 p.m. at South Abington "Rec" Park at 642 Northern Boulevard in South Abington Township.

The wine festival happens rain or shine.  It features music, vendors, food, and baskets.

Tickets are $20 in advance.  $25 the day of the event.  Designated drivers are $10.  You must be  21 or older to attend.
