May Fair 2013

Please join us this Saturday, May 4th, for our annual May Fair! This year will be a fairytale celebration, and we welcome you to dress as elves, gnomes, and fairies. Our many festivities will take place from 11am-4pm on our school grounds and in our main building located at 201 S. Winebiddle St., Pittsburgh, PA 15224.  Admission is $5 per person with a $25 family cap. Children 3 years and younger are free. Admission includes 5 free tickets to be used for different activities. While some seating will be available, we encourage families to bring a blanket to sit on.

ENTRANCE FEE: $5 per person, with a $25 family cap. All children age three and under are free. Each paid entrance includes five tickets for children’s entertainment.

ENTERTAINMENT: In addition to the May Pole, we will have four wonderful crafts (gnomes, fairy tale mobiles, Ooblek and felted fireballs), games, face painting, hair braiding, a bounce house, a marionette performance, and demonstrations by the Allegheny County Mounted Police.

 VOLUNTEER: We are still in need of volunteers to make the fair a success.
