Upcoming Events in Pittsburgh

Luke and The Boys will be back on the road soon and have three events back-to-back in the Pittsburgh area they’d like you to know about:

The Boys will arrive in the Pittsburgh area Tuesday, June 30th. They plan to walk across the West End Bridge to PNC Park (115 Federal Street) at about 6:30 PM where they will appear at the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Pup Night, Tuesday, June 30th. How cool is this?? And entire night of baseball AND you can take your dog. Look for Luke, Hudson, and Murphy there.

This is the 3rd Annual Pup Night with the Pirates. Before the game there are always great activities and things to do. Pup Night at PNC Park starts about 7PM local time (EDT) Tuesday, June 30th. It’s Pirates vs. Cubs. Enjoy a night of baseball and festivities with your pup on the Southwest Flight Deck! Watch the game, socialize with the other dogs and their people, visit the animal shelter booths, enter the doggie costume contest and raffles, eat ballpark food. (Yes, there is a special doggie potty area to keep your canine companion comfortable during the game. They also supply water for your friend.)

The $20 ticket includes your ticket and your dog's ticket (limit one dog per person) and a portion of the proceeds benefits Animal Friends and the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society. If you want to attend all six Pirates Pup Nights, the season can be purchased for $108 (one person, one dog, six games).

Proof of vaccination must be presented upon entry. All tickets must be picked up at the Pup Night table on Federal Street starting 2 hours prior to game.

Please be aware that Pirates homeruns and victories are celebrated with a small fireworks display.

They’ll then have a Meet and Greet the next day, July 1st, at Market Square from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM. If you’re in or near the Pittsburgh area, please come out and meet the trio. There are some great restaurants in the area as well, so plan to make a day of it!

Additionally, Luke will be visiting with the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society at the Mall at Robinson, Thursday, July 2nd, from 5:30 to 9:00 PM. You’ll find them at center court in the Mall.

A lot going on! We hope to see you there.

I have a number of dog-loving relatives in Pittsburgh, and I will definitely let them know about your events. It's a great city and I hope you enjoy your time there!
