To celebrate Envision Downtown’s Life on Liberty Streetscape enhancements along Liberty Avenue, a full day of activations and fun have been planned for Friday, September 21.
Along with a variety of partners, the block will be filled with vendors, music, and activities as well as lush, green space for the day!
The north side of the block will be filled with beautiful green grass and planters courtesy of Western Pennsylvania Conservancy stretching from the corner of 10th Street to the new Sparklet Greenhouse in front of Bae Bae's Kitchen. There will also be additional seating for passersby to enjoy.
Several local partners will be on-hand with breakfast treats and there will be live, local music in the morning from Joel Lindsey Entertainment and others. Dahntahn Donuts, Stickler's Ice Pops, and more will be on-site with sweet treats available for purchase!
This activation is in celebration of the world-wide event, Park(ing) Day, where communities collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places.
Events will continue through lunchtime. When evening rolls around, the celebration will join the popular Pittsburgh Cultural Trust Gallery Crawl. Additional businesses will be selling food and cocktails that can be enjoyed in the temporary green space. These businesses include Images Pittsburgh, Condado Tacos, and There Ultra Lounge. A DJ will be spinning fresh tunes to get everyone into a great mood. This special block party will occur from 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
