Around this time of year, it’s hard not to start thinking spring. Here are seven spring activities in Pittsburgh you don’t want to miss.

1. Opening Day at Kennywood

Kennywood’s 2020 opening day is Saturday May 2nd. Kick off a summer at the park and cross your fingers for a sunny and gorgeous day! For more information on Kennywood, click HERE.
