Forbes, Marilyn, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


The streets of Mt. Pleasant will come alive next weekend when the annual Glass and Ethnic festival opens Friday.

"We anticipate another banner year," festival committee chairman Jeff Landy said. "Last year was our best year ever, and we hope to continue to see the larger crowds."

The festival will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 30. Dozens of crafters will be present, and artisans will be on hand to demonstrate their skills and fascinate the visitors.

"Peter O'Rourke will be here, and we are really excited that he is coming," Landy said. "He is a glass-cutting specialist, and he does amazing work."

Artists from Laurel Arts and Glass also will be on hand to perform glass blowing throughout the entire weekend. Three performance stages will be set up and entertainment will be ongoing at all locations.

Strolling entertainment will take place throughout the weekend and will feature mimes, magicians and "the monkey man."

Highlights include the big Saturday afternoon parade, the Sunday afternoon kids' zone, the queen contests and midway games, bingo at the senior center and children's rides.

A log cabin is fully restored and will be open to the public. Veterans Park and wall will be available for all visitors to enjoy.

The food selections range from hamburgers and hot dogs to crab cake sandwiches and gourmet corn.

Local booths will feature fresh filled doughnuts, fish sandwiches, sweet potato fries, Cindy Sue ham barbecue, Pittsburgh sandwiches, chicken wraps, chili and fresh pies.

Ethnic foods such as halupki, haluski and perogies will be available. …
