Here are the Top Five Fun Things to do in Pittsburgh July 3rd – 5th.
A Hollywood star and her ‘gal pals’ are going overseas to entertain the troops with a 1944 USO show in “Swingtime Canteen.” I have a sneaking suspicion we will hear about a bugle boy who likes to Boogie Woogie. I’m giving you your marching orders; proceed to South Park Theatre, Corrigan Drive and Brownsville Road, Bethel Park, PA 15129. Playing July 2nd – 18th (no show July 4th).
