Hello July!

Happy 4th of July weekend everyone!  I'm spending the holiday weekend in Kent Narrows, Maryland - crossing my fingers for some sunshine and warm weather.  I'm sure I'll have some pictures from the trip to share soon!  Every month I like to feature some of my favorite events going on in Pittsburgh.  This month I switched it up a bit and did a quick list of 10 fun events that are going on throughout the entire summer.  The best part?  Most of these events are free and all are under $20!  Where will your July plans take you?!  I would love to hear about your "must-do" activities this month!

1.  Station Square Summer Jam - every Friday throughout the summer - new local and national acts each week! 

2.  Yoga in the Square - Market Square - every Sunday morning - get your yoga on and then head to one of the nearby downtown restaurants for brunch! 

3.  Mellow Mondays - Market Square - every Monday from 12 PM - 1 PM.  Is there a better way to spend a Monday lunch hour than listening to some live acoustic music in the square?  

4.  Wednesday Wake Up Paddle - Kayak Pittsburgh North Shore - every Wednesday from 6:15 AM - 7:30 AM.  You have to get up early for this one - but what a great way to watch the sun come up!  $18 / $12 for members
