McKeesport's 60th International Village will kick off with a Village for Kids from 12 to 4 p.m. on Monday (Aug. 12) at the Lions Bandshell in Renziehausen Park.
The family-friendly event is free of charge and will include plenty of food and fun. Activities include crafts, games, and inflatable rides.
“It’s an exciting opportunity to offer something like this for kids in and around the area because it brings everyone together for a day of excitement and fun while getting to know our neighbors,” said organizer Alison Piccolino.
“There are some fantastic people that have come together over these last 11 years to make it possible and I’m forever grateful to them and look forward to working with them each year,” she said. “The Village for Kids is simply a day of fun and we all need some fun in our lives.”
Guests will have the opportunity to meet their favorite Toy Story friends and the crowning of a prince and princess of International Village will take place at 3 p.m. The first 500 kids will receive a free item from the Pittsburgh Pirates.
