Dance To The Music

Sure you can rhyme "June" with "moon." But we prefer to go with a "June" and "Tune" match to announce the start of our weekly Thursday noontime concerts in Market Square, starting this week and going through August 18. This year's series hits a high note from the start with one of Pittsburgh's favorite rockers, Bill Deasy. And be sure to check our events calendar every week to see who's taking the stage. Best of all the hottest concert ticket in the Square is absolutely free.   All summer you can tap your feet to a variety of rock, country, soul, jazz and more as some of Pittsburgh's most talented musicians sing, dance and play during the Farmers Market. Now that's what we call one sweet duet.

While grownups get to have fun in the Square nearly every day, we're setting aside one day a week especially for youngsters to enjoy themselves during Kidsplay. The fun starts this Friday, June 3 from 10-11:30 a.m. and continues each week through August 19. With a mix of educational and entertaining activities, Kidsplay is a great for parents and their children to experience the Square in a family friendly atmosphere. From McGruff the Crime Dog to that Guy with the Birds, Kidsplay is fun for everyone. To see what's in store this year, check the Kidsplay schedule now.

School may be out soon. But we think learning never stops. And there's no better way to discover more about Market Square than a Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation tour. Led by some ace architectural and history buffs, the Market Square area tours are great to discover some of the most amazing things in and around the Square — and to learn just how Pittsburgh came to be one of the best and most important cities in the U.S.A. The tours are free, but the number of walkers is limited. You'll cover a lot of ground and information during the one-hour tours, which start at noon in the PNC Triangle Park in front of the Fairmont Hotel. To make a reservation for the June 3, 10, 17 or 24 tour, visit the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation tour site today.

If you're looking for a bit more of a workout than strolling around the city, the YMCA will lead free exercises every Friday in the Square to get in you into summertime shape. From Spinning to Zumba to Pilates and Yoga, you'll find variety and a friendly atmosphere.  Instead of taking time away from family before or after work, you can get ready for swim season on your lunch hour - buy fresh veggies on Thursday and meet up with the YMCA on Friday.  If you had pastitsio instead of veggies, well, they'll take care of that too!

And just in case all this wasn't enough to fill your June calendar, the Market Square Merchants Association will host special events during lunch on Mondays and Wednesdays during the summer and some very cool "happy hour" happenings on Fridays. Stay tuned for more information or visit our events calendar to stay current.

Summer is just heating up — and the Square is one cool hot spot to be all summer long.
