PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A number of roads are shutting down this weekend for Pittsburgh Pride celebrations.

There are numerous events associated with the festivities, and that means a lot of closures beginning Thursday night and lasting through Sunday, June 10. The city will host the EQT Equality March, the Peoples Pride 2k18 March, PrideFest and Pride Rocks PGH.

“Saturday’s PrideFest is from noon to 5,” said Christine Bryan, of The Delta Foundation. “Free festival, 175 vendors, children’s activities, extremely family-friendly, crafts, food vendors, come on down.”

City officials say road closures for those events include sections of Liberty Avenue and Smithfield Street, as well as other busy Downtown streets. There will also be parking restrictions and some rolling closures.

In addition to PrideFest, it’s also the final weekend of the Three Rivers Arts Festival; and over on the North Shore, plenty of people are expected to try TopGolf Crush at Heinz Field.

“Bring your rainbows, bring your glitter and bring your patience,” said Bryan.
