Weekly News Highlights
Pittsburgh received some good news this week as it prepared for all of the festivities in June. Its reputation for being the home to french-fry-eating yinzers is quickly diminishing. Pittsburgh is considered one of the fittest cities in the country (which came as a surprise). Apparently the ‘Burgh’s number of farmer’s markets, health facilities, parks, and citizens with few health problems and high-risk behaviors stand for something. Pittsburgh is also one of the coolest and affordable hubs for up-and-coming creatives. Bravo!
The Delta Foundation‘s Pride Festival kicks off this week with their Fabulous Gay Friday. Check out their website for more details on how to partake in this year’s festivities. Our very own Mayor Peduto will be doing his part on June 15th as he officiates 20 same-sex marriages in honor of last months court ruling. How sweet is that?!
The Three Rivers Arts Festival starts on Friday, June 6th. Don’t miss this FREE 10 day event with art, crafts, food, and music performances by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Kaiser Chiefs, Smithereens, and more! If you’re nervous about parking downtown, take a Lyft! You can use our code: NAKYOUOUT to receive $20 off your first ride.
