Summer Family Magic Shows in Pittsburgh
Libraries: It's no secret that I am a strong believer that reading & our public libraries has something to offer people of all ages. If you haven't signed up fo the summer reading program at your local library, you could be missing out on some fun things as they have a fun theme you'll 'Dig' this summer! Check their links for times/reservations
Sewickley Twp: (5/31)
CC Mellor: (6/10)
Allegheny Valley: (6/15)
Moon Twp: (7/13)
A FUN 4th of July! Beat the midday lull: Some people run 5Ks in the AM and Fireworks in the PM, but what do you do with the family during the day? Did you know Sandcastle Waterpark is open? I'll even be performing there that day 1-3pm with my strolling magic Ostrich Act (something no one in the country is doing!). Check thier website as they have family friendly fun all summer long!
Springdale Boro Parade: The best post 4th of July Secret: the next day (friday) after the 4th, Springdale Boro has a wonderful parade and activities afterwards to keep the 4 day weekend moving. I'll be strolling in the parade with magic pal Weird Eric - be sure not to miss it! St. Sebastian's Parish Festival: Largest Catholic Festival in Pittsburgh: Offers something for everyone all week long. From dinners, flea market, games, rides, food, and yes even family friend;y entertainment. I'll be there 7/9 & 12. Stop by!
Depreciation Lands Museum: Annual Social: Sunday, July 14 1-4pm. All I have to say is WOW, (if you've been there, you know what I mean) Take a trip back to colonial times right in Pittsburgh's back yard. I'm honored to be performing my colonial magic show in colonial dress as 'Albert Noble', an itinerant magician you would have seen back in the day. ALSO, if you are looking for a unique party (such as birthday), field trip, or even scout outting, they have different party packages you would enjoy! Check out their website for more information!
Bruster's of Ingomar: National Ice Cream Day Celebration!: July 14, 1-6pm. (I'll be performing at 3pm) Check their website for more information, but not only do they have Ice Cream, but they have many public events such as craft shows, family days, fundraising, scout and birthday parties
Relay for Life: Butler County Fair Grounds: (July 20th) Not only have I performed at Relay for Life in 3 different counties throughout Western PA, but i'm honored to be performing at the survivor's dinner. Stop by for the all day family fun! It's not too late: Having a party?: Honestly, my summer is almost full with camps, preschools, block parties, reunions, company picnics - I have very few dates left, but please feel free to still contact me, even if I am not available, I speed text other entertainer's availabilities I recommend and can get back to you, saving YOU time and hassle for FREE! :)
The Buskers are Coming!: What's a busker?: What do The Wiggles, The Beatles, Penn & Teller, The Blueman Group, & even Bruce Springsteen have in common? Like little tommy tucker, they all sang for their supper street performing for tips. I'm grateful my expirence busking has helped me as a performer in countless ways. The Pittsburgh Downtown Community Development Corporation is currently working on areas designated Public Performance Art throughout the area. Don't confuse these artists as bums or panhandlers, Feel free to throw a tip in the hat of your favorte performer! Here's a picture of me busking in front of the Carnegie Library getting flight time with a new routine I put together:
Finally: Gonna be a great summer: Dispite running around to swim meets, summer camps, language camp, vacation bible school, gymnastics, birthdays, oh wait,....that's just as a Dad, no magic those days! :-)
