Every First Friday of the month downtown Hazleton is energized with special events and merchant promotions. These typically include featured art exhibitions, theatrical performances, walking tours, live music, and other special events like the seasonal Farmer’s Market and the Chamber’s Car Cruise. First Fridays are a partnership between the Downtown Hazleton Alliance for Progress, the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce, the Hazleton Art League, Hazleton POWER!, and several other organizations, with funding assistance and support provided by the Luzerne County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
The Downtown Hazleton Alliance for Progress is accepting participant applications for a new pilot program, “Leadership On The Rise,” which will kick-off May 4th (7-9 PM) and continue each Monday for five weeks. The free online program will be conducted in Spanish.
Facilitator: Fermin Diaz, DHAP Main Street Program Coordinator. For more information: email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 570-599-9670.
This program is designed to help immigrants and other new members of the community understand how our local institutions operate, stimulate passion for community service, and nurture leaders who will help sustain the revitalization of Downtown Hazleton.
