It’s August, so what shall we celebrate?


Depending on how you use your calendar, we’re about halfway through summer. Welcome to the only month without a widely recognized U.S. holiday (though here are some tantalizing suggestions).

In Pittsburgh, as in much of the U.S., we are now in the dog days of summer, but that has nothing to do with heat. Or sunshine. Sorry. July is actually Pittsburgh’s sunniest month.

So what to celebrate in August? Plenty. The long goodbye to summer. A fine selection of events, opportunities and places to visit in this issue, plus, as always, lots of great news you can use.
