Fans flock to Scranton, Pa., for ‘The Office’ fete

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — The actors who play Pam, Jim, Dwight and other beloved characters from the popular NBC show “The Office” have bade farewell to the northeastern Pennsylvania city of Scranton that served as the TV setting for their fictional paper company.

The NBC mockumentary about a clan of quirky cubicle-dwellers at the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Co. wraps up May 16 after nine seasons. A crowd of about 10,000 attended a “Wrap Party” in Scranton on Saturday to show their appreciation.

Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson and other stars rode in a parade and posed for hundreds of photos as fans thronged around them.

The (Scranton) Times-Tribune reports that Steve Carell, who played office boss buffoon Michael Scott, made a surprise appearance later Saturday.
