Strike up the band! This premier North Side event kicks off with a colorful parade marching to the the beat of the Perry High School Marching Band and continues for a full day of adventure and exploration at Riverview Park!
A soaring rock climbing wall serves as the centerpiece of this day of free family activities. Kids test their climbing skills as they scale the 32-foot structure. Then explore the landmark Allegheny Observatory, hailed as one of the major astronomical research institutions of the world. Or set off on the extensive network of wilderness trails that attract hikers, joggers and horseback riders year round to this grand regional park.
Throughout the park grounds, kids unleash their creativity at the Citiparks Roving Art Cart, explore nature at the Frick Environmental Center hands-on adventure, greet favorite mascots, ride ponies and horses, and much more. The Department of Public Safety's brave men and women in blue provide an interactive/educational experience for kids and families. And everyone enjoys free refreshments.
