CELEBRATE THE 22ND ANNUAL ALPHABET TRAIL & TALES WITH CITIPARKS
PITTSBURGH — CitiParks will celebrate the 22nd Annual Alphabet Trail and Tales this Saturday, September 9, 2023, in Frick Park at the Blue Slide Playground entrance (Beechwood Blvd. & Nicholson St.) from 10 AM to 1 PM.
“We look forward to this spectacular event every year, as we celebrate the very best in early and elementary-aged literacy and the joy of reading,” said CitiParks Director Kathryn Vargas.
Held on the second Saturday in September, Alphabet Trail and Tales is the largest read-aloud event in Western Pennsylvania, serving the greater Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area, Allegheny, and surrounding counties. This FREE event attracts approximately five thousand children and families each year, exploring the Alphabet Trail for a day of reading and fun!
Alphabet Trail and Tales presents the best in children’s literature with dynamic storytellers that include interactive larger-than-life story sets, musical entertainment, puppet parades, face painting, children’s art activities, and more. With a host of literacy support from major Pittsburgh organizations along with the best in STEM/STEAM art and enrichment Alphabet Trail and Tales is not to be missed.
This year’s book selection is exceptional. CitiParks and the Cultural Trust’s EQT Children’s Theater will present an expanded, full-story production of Anna Dewdney’s Llama Llama Red Pajama as well as Marcus Pfister’s Rainbow Fish. New York Times best-selling author and illustrator Troy Cummings will visit as we present his book Is This Your Class Pet?. Other interactive story sets will share Pigs Aplenty, Pigs Galore, and Dear Zoo which recently celebrated its 40th Anniversary. The author of Fly, Brittany Thurman will also be on hand.
Share the joy of reading and we will see you along the Alphabet Trail on Saturday!
