Holidays in the ‘Burgh

Celebrate the Fourth at Fort Pitt

At 11 a.m., help lower a British flag and replace it with a 13-star American flag in the Fort Pitt Block House yard. The flag is the same size and pattern as the one that flew over the fort more than 200 years ago. It was designed to be spotted from up to five miles away. Then, from 1 to 4 p.m., learn about the fort's role in the American Revolution with demonstrations, reenactors and museum tours.

Where: Point State Park

When: July 4, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
