Enliven and enrich your child’s summer with KidsPlay at Market Square. Beginning Tuesday, June 5, children and their families/caregivers can enjoy fun and educational programs and activities complete with crafts and special guests. Children can plant their own tree one week, see how cartoons come to life the next, and even touch a real fire truck, all in Downtown’s historic Market Square. The free program series produced by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP), introduces children to a new and exciting learning experience each Tuesday morning through August 21, 10 – 11:30 a.m. *Programs are geared toward pre-school aged children and welcome families, caregivers, schools, day cares and camps.
