National Aviary Flamingo Fest: A Great Activity Since We Avoided Blizzard 2013


It’s a beautiful Sunday in Pittsburgh!  Why is it beautiful? I just looked outside and it’s one of the first days in a while that it hasn’t been snowing. Although Pittsburgh does not have perfect weather, we were spared Blizzard 2013.  I think that we owe it to ourselves to take advantage of that!

As you may know, I am a huge fan of the National Aviary. It’s one of Pittsburgh’s treasures.  Inside it is a tropical oasis filled with beautiful plants, flowers and of course, lots of birds. A trip to the National Aviary is the next best thing to taking a Spring Break.

Since the roads are passable, it’s a great day to go on a family outing. If you’re looking for something to do, check out Flamingo Fest at the National Aviary. My daughter and I went yesterday and it was quite lovely. They had crafts, games and shows all focused on flamingos. Also, the birds were absolutely beautiful!

The gorgeous flamingos!
 

The National Aviary is open from 10:00AM-5:00PM. They’re also having snacks between 10 and 1. Check it out!
