Happy Birthday, Pittsburgh!

Today, November 25, at 6 p.m., Pittsburgh officially turns 250 years old.  This was the moment, 250 years ago, that the area at The Point was named Pittsburgh, well, probably Pittsboro and our city began the wonderful ride we find ourselves on.

Pittsburgh's Homecoming Weekend

The Boy Scouts are once again at The Point, changing out the flags, this time also celebrating with the 59th annual Eagle Scout recognition dinner.  The weekend continues with the 101st backyard brawl, the premier of “My Tale of Two Cities,” the Celebrate the Season parade and the international toast to Pittsburgh.  Get more information about the activities here.

Now, assuming I have figured out how to work this blogging software, this post will show up at 6 p.m., or at least close to it.  If not, when I get back from the Eagle Dinner I’ll be working to get this published.  Either way, Happy Birthday!
