Grab a blanket, gather the kids, and head to Schenley Park this Sunday, August 10, at 6:30 p.m., as the Mayor and his wife, Erin, host their first-ever "Family Night."
"Erin and I are extending a personal invitation to every family living in the City of Pittsburgh to discover many of the City's most popular activities in one convenient location," said Mayor Ravenstahl. "On this special night, kids can climb aboard a fire truck, express their creativity by visiting the Citiparks Roving Art Cart, learn about nature at the Frick Environmental Center touch table and much, much more."
Join the Ravenstahl's on Flagstaff Hill - site of Citiparks Cinema in the Park each Sunday and Wednesday throughout the summer - for a special evening of free family fun before the movie begins at dusk.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m., children will enjoy arts and crafts, storytellers, strolling performers, light refreshments, and an opportunity to climb aboard police, fire and public works vehicles. Then sign up for a youth sports league, the Junior Great Race, or reading program, pick up information about City neighborhoods and learn more about the Pittsburgh Promise.
At dusk (approximately 8:30 p.m.), spread a blanket on Flagstaff Hill for an unforgettable evening of cinema under the stars. Citiparks Cinema in the Park will present the Academy Award nominated animated film Surf's Up (rated PG).
"Watching a movie on Flagstaff Hill is a truly amazing experience thanks to the illuminated backdrop of the Oakland skyline," said the Mayor. "Over the course of a summer, Citiparks Cinema in the Park presents more than 80 free movies at seven neighborhood sites. I want to encourage families to take advantage of this great - and free - family fun."
