Pittsburgh FireWalk

Pittsburgh weather, amiright? The first installment of Pittsburgh FireWalk was supposed to kick off last month until rainy weather canceled the festivities. But what made for a sad October makes for an even better November, as City of Play's inaugural fire-lit carnival is now a weekend-long event. Inspired by historic fireside traditions, the festival will help visitors embrace daylight savings time with three bonfires spread throughout the North Side in cauldrons designed by Pittsburgh nonprofit Rivers of Steel. Musicians, storytellers, and dancers will provide entertainment by the fire, and attendees can also visit a night market with games, arts, and food. In lieu of tickets, visitors can purchase sustainably harvested firewood, laser-burned with a “dedication of your choosing directly into the wood" to add to the fire.
