Final Free and Almost Free Fall Events

admin - Wednesday, November 16, 2016


The start of the holiday season is upon us! It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Oktoberfest at Hofbrauhaus… and now Halloween has passed by. [If you’re left with a ton of candy, be sure to check out our baking blog from a couple weeks ago!] Now, it’s time to start looking forward to Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas! Here are some free and almost free fall and winter activities that will get you in the mood for 2016 Holiday Season!

Light Up Night, Holiday Tree Lighting

Pittsburgh knows how to kick off the holidays. Food vendors arrive at 5 p.m., with live music beginning at 6 p.m. including Daya and OAR. The unity tree lights up at 7 p.m. and the night is capped off with a firework show!
