Station Description and Details

Take a scenic train ride through the Lackawanna Valley to Jessup, PA. Enjoy the Jessup Hose Company No. 2 Annual Carnival and watch the Saint Ubaldo Day "Running of the Saints" celebration.

Event History: Held annually on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, Lackawanna County’s most unique festival only takes place in two places in the world: The sister Cities of Jessup, Pennsylvania, and Gubbio, Italy. Brought to Jessup in 1909, St. Ubaldo Day was a way for immigrants from Gubbio who largely settled in Jessup to feel connected to the home they left behind.

For over 100 years, this celebration has brought thousands of spectators to Lackawanna County to join in the fun. This wonderful tradition is an exciting combination of color, culture, pride, and faith that the whole family will enjoy.

Amenities: Food and refreshments are available for purchase at the Jessup Hose Company No. 2 Annual Carnival
