Grab your capes and head to the streets of Downtown Pittsburgh this Saturday as the ToonSeum and Bricolage Theater celebrate with the Downtown Heroes Block Party. I will be missing the festivities since we (and perhaps some furries as well what with Anthrocon being in town this weekend and all) have a very special wedding to celebrate (congrats Christian and Jen!). But you? You have no excuse......
Parents and kids aged 6-12 will enjoy a host of activities, including a Superman sound effects workshop, make-your-own superhero costumes, outdoor jazz, free comic books, and a special matinee performance of Midnight Radio: Superhero Edition!
Other participating organizations include the August Wilson Center, Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, and VisitPittsburgh.
All activities are located on the 900 block of Liberty Avenue downtown.
