Winter is definitely here in the ‘Burgh, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of things to do with kids in Pittsburgh in January. We’ve browsed the internet and local events calendar and have pulled together a list of things for you to do with your ‘lil Burghers in January. Enjoy!
Our attendance at Lantern Fest PA was one such opportunity.
My eyes are still tearing up every now and then thinking about our night at Lantern Fest.
First, Greg ended up getting to go with me because the date changed. Yay for semi-date nights. Us married couples need relationship builders, you know?!?
Tonight’s post is thanks to Lantern Fest, an event coming to Pittsburgh in May 2016. UPDATE! New date, due to weather, is June 4, 2016.
Two years ago, the Bigs and I got to witness one of the coolest closing events of a wedding ever, a sky filled with lanterns. They chose to light lanterns and release them into the sky because “historically, Chinese Lanterns have been used to symbolize good fortune, request favorable weather, and celebrate the lives of loved ones” (I got my information from the Lantern Fest, but same reasoning for our friends big day). The release was spectacular – we ooo’ed and aww’ed — watching several lanterns lift into the late evening sky.
I might be all into eating healthy, but that doesn’t mean I won’t take a break and enjoy some ice cream this summer. That’s why you will find Evan and I tasting and voting on our favorite flavors at the Pittsburgh Zoo on Sunday, August 17 for Pressley Ridge’s Ice Cream Fundae.
