VisitPITTSBURGH’s Newest Video Ad: Bring the Kids

The Kidsburgh campaign will debut in May in selected markets no more than a day’s drive from Pittsburgh.

On the heels of national ad campaign (see below), VisitPITTSBURGH is launching a new set of ads (see above) aimed at parents who are looking for a great destination spot for their children.

Target markets include Cleveland, Columbus, Erie and Philadelphia.

In addition to all of our great kid-friendly attractions, there is another incentive. For each hotel overnight a visitor books through, he or she receives a $25 gift card good at Giant Eagle or GetGo stores plus the opportunity to purchase tickets to any of the participating KidsBURGH attractions, most offered at half price.


#ParkRenovation: Allegheny Commons

The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy is stepping in to help with the restoration of Pittsburgh’s oldest park.

The Conservancy announced Monday Allegheny Commons on the North Side will be among its list of parks it helps restore and manage as part of an agreement with the city.

Patricia Rooney, wife of Steelers chairman Dan, has played a key role in fundraising efforts.

“Welcome to my park. I grew up playing in this park. Our children played in this park. Now we walk in this park.  It is a treasure for all of us that we must protect. Now we’re going to restore the fountain. We hope to have it up and running this time next year.”

The Parks Conservancy said in a statement that it will continue to work closely with Northside Leadership Conference, Allegheny Commons Initiative, and the Northside community as the project continues.
