the project

Pittsburgh PA: We in Brighton Heights believe in building connections among our residents and neighboring communities for a stronger unified community.

Brighton Heights will hold it's 2nd annual 'Love Your Neighbor' rally and block party this fall 2017.
The 'Love Your Neighbor' rally was created to celebrate our community and in 2016 was held in Legion Park a central oasis here In Brighton Heights.
But if the event gets too big this year it might have to be moved to a BIGGER nearbye park.

It will again highlight a number of informational booths set up and bring together local churches, our local police, firemen, various youth organizations, other organizations and businesses. 

Each booth will featured a fun family-oriented game and/or activity (such as face-painting or a craft) as well as information about the services this groups offer.

This year, as we grow, we hope to have local vendors selling their wares. 

In addition there will be a giant inflatable rock slide or bouncy house, giant puppets, company mascots, balloons, games with prizes, a Pgh. fire truck on display and many more fun things. We also have several musical performances which, last year, was a big attraction.

This event will once again bring together churches,  to provide information on how we can work together to promote Brighton Heights as a safe and inviting place to visit, live and shop.
