Celebrating #4

The Pgh Momtourage turned 4 this August!
My initial thought.....hey, let's throw a party!
And let's invite local small businesses to be a part of our event.
And let's see if we can get an amazing location.
And let's see if a Food Truck wants to come.
And let's get some amazing family entertainers.
And let's have a great night!
And so we did.
Kelly saying hey to lots of new & old friends!
And you could also enter to win gift cards to The Clay Café (A fantastic paint-your-own-pottery studio). A great party/playdate destination!
Happy Harry the Clown started out our evening with a show with lots of laughs. Happy Harry’s entertainment is good, clean fun and a great addition to any gathering! He would be an extra bonus for your next event, contact HH here.
His line for balloon art rarely was empty!
Next on our list of great entertainers was the always hilarious Pittsburgh Magician Al Mazing!
Very funny, the kids (& adults) love him!
Al is a magician in Pittsburgh that specializes in entertaining kids and family audiences. His magic shows are perfect for birthday, schools, weddings, fundraisers, festivals, preschools, or any fun filled family event.
A great crowd!
  So happy to have the BRGR Food Truck come with yummy burgers & shakes! And what a great view they had, huh?!
BRGR also has 2 great restaurants, one in the heart of the Eastside of Pittsburgh and one in Cranberry. Check them out for their amazing burgers & shakes!
The West End Overlook is a hidden gem!
 Local church in the West End, Three Rivers Grace Church, was there with candy, water, & books to give away!
Carnegie West End library had a genius idea to bring a sand pool, complete with dinosaurs. It was a big hit! CLP - West End has tons of family programs for kids, teens, & adults.
Children's Librarian, Jamie Collett, ended our evening with her ukulele, tambourines, + a goodnight story time.  
 Faces by Christina was on hand doing some great face art!
Christina is available for Fairs, Conventions, Birthday Parties, Bar-Mitzvahs, or any other fun events! Only the finest quality, theatrical, water-based paints and brushes are used.
Here's a sneak peak at some of the great local businesses that joined us! They all generously gave away prize packages at the end of the evening!
We were so excited to hear that Klavon's is re-opening in the Strip District! They were on hand with some of their amazing ice cream & homemade fudge - delish!
Klavon's is an authentic antique 1920's Ice Cream Parlor located in the Strip District of Pittsburgh- 2801 Penn Avenue. Re-opening under new ownership, but the same awesome historic feel.
