Splash Pool Party, Pittsburgh

This week, Pittsburgh Pride is feeling good from its head to its shoes, celebrating a “New Attitude” with parties, parades and an outdoor concert by Patti LaBelle.

First, we get soaking wet at the SPLASH Pool Party on Thursday, June 9.  Bring your bathing suit to cool off in the pool or warm up in the hot tub while enjoying drinks, food and beautiful views from atop Mt. Washington.

On Friday, June 10, we crawl (well, technically we are driven) through the city’s gay bars, pubs and clubs.  Leave your car at home, and hop on the Pub Crawl bus, making stops from 8pm to 2am.

Saturday, June 11, welcomes R&B legend Patti LaBelle to Liberty Avenue for the Pride in the Street event.  The original Lady Marmalade will perform a 45-minute outdoor concert for an expected crowd nearing 5,000 attendees.

And on Sunday, June 12, we march, cheer and celebrate.  At 12pm, the Parade kicks off down Grant Street and flows into the PrideFest entrance on Liberty Avenue and Sixth Street.  The daylong event features vendors, street performers, live entertainment on two stages, and the optional Beer Garden.

Visit PittsburghPride.org for tickets and information on all the events.  For a good time with considerable savings, purchase the Pittsburgh Pride Pass including the Pub Crawl, Pride in the Street and PrideFest Beer Garden for only $50.
