To Do This Weekend

Category: Events || By

Irwin Heritage Days: Five Guys Named Moe and The Dallas Marks Band headline a weekend of entertainment, food and crafts in downtown Irwin.

Irwin Heritage Days runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 12 to 8 p.m. Sunday and is sponsored by The Irwin Project, the collective name for a group of community development projects aimed at revitalizing the borough's downtown.

The concerts are slated for 6:30 p.m. each night in Irwin Park, with Five Guys Named Moe on Saturday and Dallas Marks on Sunday.

Middle Earth Studios will have costumed storytelling for children at 11 a.m. Saturday and at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

. . .

Relay for Life at Stadium: American Cancer Society is sponsoring a Relay for Life Saturday and Sunday on the walking track at Weigle-Schaeffer Memorial Stadium, McKeesport Area High School, 1960 Eden Park Blvd.

We counted nine teams registered already on Friday night. The walk gets underway at 12 p.m. Saturday. Visit the website for details.

. . .

Shakespeare in the Park: See "Romeo and Juliet" where it was meant to be seen --- in Monroeville.

Poor Yorick's Players present Shakespeare's timeless tragedy at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Tall Trees Amphitheater in Monroeville Park. (From McKeesport, take Route 48 north across Route 130 to the left turn at Cambridge Square Drive, then take the next left onto Tilbrook Road.)

Performances are free, but visitors must bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. Call (412) 537-1705 or visit the website. Just don't mention the Scottish play.
