SCOTT TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A first-of-its-kind music festival will be held in Lackawanna County this weekend. It’s the brainchild of two special education teachers who also love festival culture.
Amy Pinder is a speech and language therapist, Leah Barron is a special education elementary school teacher, but the two friends met outside of the classroom.
“We met at a festival and realized we shared the same dream which is to create a truly inclusive music and wellness festival, and when Leah found Mountain Sky, we reconnected and decided to make it happen,” Pinder said.
The women from New Jersey are in Lackawanna County this week dressing up the Mountain Sky festival grounds in Scott Township for the weekend event that combines their love of festivals with their professional backgrounds.
They believe it’s the country’s first “Inclusion Festival.”
