'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

After taking a year off, the Pyrotopia Festival of Fire Arts is back this weekend in Munhall.

The festival, which debuted in 2012, spotlights acrobatic fire performances, fire games, and light and electric art. The main event is from 8 p.m. to midnight May 10 at Munhall Recreation Park, 1900 West St., with fireworks by VFI Fireworks starting at 11:30 p.m. Tickets are $15, $10 in advance.

Shuttles will run from a free parking area at Steel Valley High School, 3113 Main St., Munhall, for the evening show. A free Volcano Village with activities for kids and families will take place at the festival site from noon to 4 p.m. Participating groups include Carnegie Science Center, Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh Glass Center and Carnegie Library of Homestead.

A variety of food trucks will be set up throughout the day. If there is heavy rain or high winds, the event will be postponed until May 11.
