Lebanese Heritage Festival in Scranton Expands to Two Days

A well-known Lebanese Heritage Festival in Scranton's westside is expanding this year.

This weekend, the festival at the corner of Price Street and North Sumner Avenue has gone from a one-day event to two days.

Organizers at Saint Ann's Maronite Church say they had such a huge turnout and so many requests for Lebanese food last year, they decided to tack on an extra day.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey highlighted the event Friday.

The festival features everything from homemade grape leaves to baked kibbeh.

This marks the 24th year for the event.

The money raised helps fund church projects.
