It’s the Fourth of July Weekend, people and Pittsburgh is hopping!
The Furries are among us! Be a real party animal at Anthrocon 2014 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. But you don’t have to dress up to get down with the anthropomorphic members of this convention. DJs are spinning tunes and it’s great to see people dressed up as animals.
You can find talking animals all over Pittsburgh this weekend, but the best place is still the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, 1000 Fort Duquesne Boulevard, Pittsburgh.

The Big O
James Michael Shoberg is putting a twist on Oliver Twist when the Rage of the Stage perform “Oliver Twisted!” at the McKeesport Little Theater.
Things will be grueling, but you may ask for more.
Check out the McKeesport Little Theater, 1614 Coursin St., McKeesport, PA 15132. For more information, go to http://rageofthestage.com/
Ever wonder what Romeo and Juliet would be like if they were both members of warring vampire clans; one protecting illegal aliens crossing the border, and the other, trying kill them. I didn’t either, but Philip Real did when 12 Peers Theater presents “Cactus.”
If “Cactus” pricks your interest, head over to The Grey Box Theatre3595 Butler St., Pittsburgh.

You Gotta Regatta!
EQT presents the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta. It’s a world class land, air and water festival and it’s the largest inland regatta in the country. There will be powerboat races, sand sculptures, live music and eating contests. It’s Pittsburgh’s summer celebration!
Get to the Point! Point State Park. For directions just find the spot where the Allegheny and Monongahela meet the Ohio River, or just look for the giant fountain.
