Feast on pierogis at fall Kennywood fest
Sweet or savory, pan-fried or boiled, filled with potato, cheese or fruit, pierogis are comfort food of the highest order for Pittsburghers.
The popular salute to the ethnic treat, served as entree, side dish, dessert, even hand-held for eaters on the go, will offer plenty to keep one busy in between pierogi courses.
Live musical entertainment ranges from polka to traditional folk to garage band.
Several park rides will be open, including the Merry-Go-Round, Thunderbolt, Jack Rabbit, Racer, Turtle, and Noah's Ark. Guests can paint their own pierogi with Paint Monkey and shop the pop-up Pierogi Marketplace for all things pierogi-related — T-shirts, jewelry, pottery, festival keepsakes and Pittsburgh memorabilia, according to a release
Select Kennywood games and food vendors will be open, and patrons over 21 may visit the beer garden.
Tickets are on sale for $24, $19.99 by April 16; or $12 for ages 3-12, $9.99 before April 16. Tickets include free parking,
