So, during this holiday-shortened working week, we've put together a photo album of some of 2011's high points in the Square. And if you look closely, you might even see yourself in a shot or two.
|Even during the dead of winter, the Pittsburgh faithful turned out to show their pride during a high-five contest between Pittsburgh and Green Bay fans. While the Green Bay won the battle on the gridiron, we triumphed in the Square.|
|We're always proud of our Scotch-Irish heritage in Pittsburgh — especially on St. Patrick's Day. This year's greening of the Square included special family friendly activities.|
|For one of the meatiest sandwiches in town, the debut of DiBella's rocked the boat with choice cuts on freshly made bread.|
|With the opening of NOLA, diners in the Square can enjoy the cuisine of New Orleans and a taste of Mardi Gras all year round.|
|The Mayor and other dignitaries gave us a little history lesson as they unveiled a plaque recognizing the Market Square area's role in the Underground Railroad and Abolitionist Movement.|
|Springtime brings the return of the Farmers Market — a bounty of fresh. from-the-field foods and homemade treats from June through November.|
|There's something going on in the Square for everyone — including the wee ones. Kidsplay is a great way to introduce the young ones to the Square on Friday mornings in the summer from 10 - 11:30 a.m.|
|Whatever the reason, the Square is just a great place to relax with friends — anytime of the day.|
|At the end of the day, Carin Mincemoyer's Diamond Diamonds art installation lights the way|
to the heart of Downtown — Market Square.
