UNC’s 3rd Annual Pine Brook Family Arts Festival

UNC and partner John Adams Elementary School hosted the 3rd Annual Pine Brook Family Arts Festival on Saturday, April 27, 2024, on the school’s playground. Activities included kids’ yoga, drum making, upcycling planters with flowers, suncatchers, face painting, balloon making, rock painting, food, music, and more!

Antonio’s Pizza and El Buen Amigo served pizza and tacos, for an additional fee. Joining us for the first time was Snook’s Wings and Things. They sold burgers, fries, wings, and more. We supplied free ice cream from Scoopz Ice Cream truck for all attendees.

Our partners Marywood University and The University of Scranton provided arts education and make and take crafts. We also hosted five local artists to assist children in creating artwork, which is made possible through sponsorship from Lackawanna County Arts ENGAGE. Other organizations presenting crafts and resources include Albright Memorial Library, Be SMART, The Greenhouse Project, Scranton Tomorrow with Keep PA Beautiful, and My Center for Independent Living.

UNC’s Pine Brook Neighborhood Community Revitalization Plan is funded by Coterra, FNBC Bank, and Peoples Security Bank through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Neighborhood Partnership Program.
