Customers enjoyed a variety of live music provided by Quality Sounds Pittsburgh. While enjoying the great music, customers were able to play games including, Bingo! Bingo was sponsored by Sarnelli’s Corner Market and McDonald’s. Sarnelli’s supplied $10 gift cards and McDonald’s supplies Free combo meal certificates. While waiting for winners of the door prizes to be announced customers enjoyed hot dogs, pasta salad and delicious pizza by G&D Market as well as chips, cookies, and a drink. They also cooled down with ice cream prepared by and sponsored by the Chestnut Ridge Community Volunteer Fire Company (CRCVFC).
There were plenty of activities for the kids this year, too. There was balloon art and face painting by the Balloon Girlz. Plus, kids enjoyed blow up games – Axe Throwing, skee ball, ring toss and football. Kids could also play a super chicken game at registration where they all had a chance to register to win a hoverboard. There was also a craft table where the girls scouts assisted the children in creating bird houses that they could build, decorate and take home with them.
At the weasel wheel game, customers had a chance to win a LHTC Broadband 2024 Calendar or an LHTC Broadband lanyard. Customers also could play the piggy race game to win a LHTC drawstring bag or LHTC magnetic chip clip.
