Friday, June 21st, 2024 – Paddling opportunity*
“Agnes,” a critically-acclaimed documentary film which chronicles the Agnes Flood of 1972 and its impact on the Wyoming Valley, will be screened on Friday, June 21, at the Millennium Circle at River Common in Wilkes-Barre beginning at 8 PM. It will be the only public screening of the film this year and will be shown in conjunction with Riverfest 2024 and in partnership with the Riverfront Parks Committee and Wilkes-Barré Preservation Society. The special public screening will offer a one-time-only, unique opportunity to watch the Agnes documentary right alongside the Susquehanna River at the exact location where many of the events depicted in the film occurred, including the gallant sandbagging efforts to save the Wyoming Valley. The screening is free and open to the public.
