Bonfire at the Iron Furnaces in Scranton This year the Bonfire will highlight the local Polish heritage through a celebration of its people and traditions! The event will feature music by the John Stevens Polka Band. Enjoy delicious Polish fare by Yogis Potato Pancakes and Tarnowski’s Kielbasa. Tickets include admission to the festival and $5 in Bonfire Bucks, to use towards food, beverage, and activities. Tickets are $25 (until the event sells out). As always, entrance to the festival is free for children 12 and under. This is a great way to interact with the community and share the rich culture of Poland. The organizers, Una David and Pam McNichols, are looking for things to display in the cultural tent, volunteers to attend and speak with guests about the Polish culture, language, and entertainers. If you can assist with anything, attend, or point them in the right direction we would be so grateful.
