Pittston’s Biggest Second Friday Art Walk Will Happen July 8

PITTSTON — July 8 has been designated as Carnival Night for the theme of this month’s Second Friday Art Walk in the City of Pittston. City officials said it would be the largest art walk ever with 40 vendors participating.

City of Pittston Main Street Manager Mary Kroptavich said there were a record number of artisans selling wares this month from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. all along Main Street.

“For Carnival Night we will have live alpacas, stilt walker Dani Long Legs and the eclectic circus will be back, a clown, and music will be provided by Merchants of Grove,” Kroptavich said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.” If you take a photo with Dani and tag the Pittston City Second Friday Art Walk, you’ll be entered to win a $25 gift card to Canteen Central.

Alpacas at Windy Haven Farm will bring four or more alpacas, where you can meet them up close.

Vendors include artists, jewelry, photography, pottery and more. Food and beverages will also be available along with cotton candy and popcorn for Carnival Night.

Also new for July 8 will be a selfie station sponsored by DJ Donnie Evans Entertainment.

Many businesses on Main Street will be open late, including restaurants and the Art e Fekts art gallery.

July 8 will be the penultimate art walk, with the last of the season taking place on Friday, September 9, with music from the Phyllis Hopkins Electric Trio.

Kroptavich said there are still vendor locations available for the September art walk. You can request a vendor reservation by visiting https://form.jotform.com/220965951555061.
