SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — The TV comedy "The Office" is marking the end of its long run with a wrap party in the Pennsylvania city where it's based.

It says the event was announced Thursday at a Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders minor league baseball game and will involve several activities in the city on May 4.

An October 2007 "Office" convention in Scranton lasted several days and was attended by thousands of fans.
