Things to Do This Memorial Day Weekend in Pittsburgh

A Story By

Memorial Day Weekend-the kickoff to summer! An exciting time for most as we prepare our backyards for barbecues and friends to gather. We fill our ice buckets with cold ones and stomachs with delicious food, hot off the grill!

However, let us not forget the true reason for Memorial Day. We remember those who have died in service for their country. We honor and thank them for their service.
