Pittsburgh celebrates bicentennial with parade of history and culture

Posted By on Tue, Jul 12, 2016 at 3:23 PM

Pittsburgh marked its 200th birthday with a weekend of events, including a parade on Sat., July 9 that commemorated the election of Pittsburgh's first mayor in 1816, Ebenezer Denny. School kids, cultural organizations, previous mayors' descendents, historical-figure reenactors and colorful puppets marched down Liberty Avenue to Point State Park. See our photo's below, and read about the artist behind the giant puppets.
