Food, games, and family-oriented fun will be part of the three-day festival to be held on the campus of Marywood University to benefit St. Joseph's Center.

St. Joseph's Summer Festival will celebrate its 50th anniversary next weekend on the grounds of Marywood University. Serving as the main fundraiser for the facility, the event will feature great food, and a variety of games. WNEP-TV meteorologist, Joe Snedeker is scheduled to finish his "Go Joe" bike ride through the region at the festival, while the news station will again host its annual telethon to benefit St. Joseph's Center.

The family-oriented event will provide many outlets for children to have fun with including a number of kiddie games, including the addition of a new basketball game this year.

Representatives from the facility note that the success of this year's event is especially critical due to cuts in funding for non-profit organizations.
