The 30th annual EQT Children's Theater Festival kicked off this Thursday, bringing food trucks, balloon art and young theater-goers to the Cultural District in Downtown Pittsburgh. The international festival, presented by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, features eight productions from six countries suitable for children of all ages, as well as lots of outdoor activities.
The event encompasses four venues (Byham Theater, August Wilson Center, Trust Arts Education Center and Bricolage Productions) and the outdoor live installation "The Sheep (Les Moutons)," at Seventh Street and Penn Ave.
