…can you see perform at the Tresckow Fire Hall (28 E. Oak St., Tresckow) this weekend?

Take a trip back in time with 70’s Flashback, an 8-piece band that recreates the era. The last time the band was there the show sold out, so be sure to snag your tickets quickly.

“We are so thrilled and excited to have the 70’s Flashback show return to Tresckow,” Shirley Matrone, event organizer, said. “We expect to have a sold out show.”

Doors open at 7 p.m. with the show starting at 8, and tickets are $15 at the door. The show will benefit Marian Palucci who is fighting a rare cancer of the bone known as multiple myelonma.


…can you do to help out a local arts venue?

Simply log on to your computer and become a monthly donor for The Vintage Theater (326 Spruce St., Scranton).

For nearly five years, the all ages visual/performing/literary arts space has hosted over 1,000 different events with over 2,000 local talents. The Vintage is seeking monetary donations in order to not only keep putting on such shows, but to be able to offer the bulk of them for free or donation-based, allowing NEPA residents to enjoy local culture and talent as much as they can.

…will you find thousands of rubber duckies floating about for a good cause this weekend?

At the 25th annual American Cancer Society Duck Derby, which will take place July 20 from noon to 2 p.m. at Coal Street Complex in Wilkes-Barre.

Six thousand of the little guys will go for their annual swim during a chance to win a variety of different prizes from area businesses. Ducks are $5 or 6 for $25. Winning ducks will be pulled at approximately 1:15 p.m.


…would anybody want to hang out with a bunch of zombies? Because Infect Scranton is the only place you could do so safely!

The second annual event will take place the weekend of Sept. 20, and this year there’s something new to look forward to this year: The Undead Fed.

The Undead Fed’s goal is to collect non-perishable food donations for the Scranton Rescue Mission. At 6 p.m. on July 20 at the Steamtown Mall in Scranton, a Guinness World Record will attempt to be broken. 8,028 people are needed to attend and registration is required in order to verify the number, so if you’d like to be a part of this record-breaking attempt sign up at
