Circle ‘Round the Square. Free! After the free 6 p.m. Nov. 8 performance at Adezzo (515 Center St., Scranton), The Dishonest Fiddlers will march to the Spruce Street side of the city’s Courthouse Square for an apolitical gathering in an effort to spread peace as polls wrap up the day’s election. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, instruments, candles and puppets, as well as intangible contributions like songs, smiles and friendship. The Fiddlers expect to begin their march around 8 p.m. For more information call 570-955-0130.
