Always evolving, this year’s North Side Celebration in the Park in Allegheny Commons Park, Saturday, July 24 from noon to 5:00 p.m., offers visitors a wide range of family activities for a summer’s day.

An activity-packed day for all ages includes: an opportunity to see and make giant puppets with puppet maker, Cheryl Capezzuti; take a train ride through the park; play bicycle bowling, kids can bounce to their hearts content, pet baby animals; make some take- home crafts; stop by the Allegheny General Hospital Wellness Tent get a massage; buy cool stuff from the local artists; eat fun festival food; see public safety vehicles; and check out the rest of the exhibitors and vendors that will be on hand for the day!

Live entertainment will include local bands including Shelf Life, Brewers Row and the Young Men & Women’s African Heritage Steel Drum Group and Hula Hoop fun with Evolve Productions. Students from Urban Impact Foundation will perform mini Shakespearean scenes in the park.

In keeping with the something for everyone, Misty Pines Dog Park will offer dog agility demonstrations that will include some K-9 officers.

The North Side Celebration in the Park from the inception has been designed to be uniquely North Side because of our abundance of cultural resources, artists and civic organizations. Celebration in the Park offers unique opportunities for parents, children, and people of all ages to enjoy cultural activities and educational experiences as well.
