Pittsburgh is a great place to raise children. There are numerous parks, festivals and program, especially in the summertime. I just learned that there is a program called "KidsPlay" at Market Square this summer on Tuesdays from 10:00AM-11:30AM.
KidsPlay will feature fun educational programs and activities complete with crafts and special guests. The activities are designed to enrich and entertain the little ones and are geared toward pre-school aged children and welcome families, caregivers, schools, day cares and camps. One week, children can plant their own tree. The next they can see how cartoons come to life and even touch a real fire truck.
KidsPlay at Market Square: Does anything beat free family fun?
Working moms, send your child down to market square with their caregiver, take a half day and enjoy the festivities yourself, or tell your day care center to bring the kids down. It's free. It's fun. And it's totally Pittsburgh!
The free program series produced by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP), introduces children to a new and exciting learning experience in one of Downtown's most popular destinations.
