For more than three decades, White Oak has had a community day for families every summer.

“It's had great local support,” borough Recreation Board chairman George Pambacas said of the event, which will be Saturday beginning at noon at Heritage Hill Park.

“It started very small, with having a day at the swimming pool, having games for the children,” Pambacas said. “It's evolved into having food and craft booths at the park.”

Much of the activity will be in the lower end of the park, between the pool and the Carnegie Library of McKeesport branch.

“We will have a coin toss, raft races, wet T-shirt relay races, free train rides and a free MoonWalk,” Pambacas said. “The recreation board will have disc jockey Dave Landi at the pool from noon until five.”

At 5 p.m., DJ Georgio will start spinning the discs, leading up to the featured Justin Fabus Band, a Pittsburgh area troupe known for the video “Leavin Kind,” which can be seen on the band's website.

The band has Justin Favus on acoustic guitar, Miguel Garcia on lead guitar, Steve Mulkerrin on bass and Jeff Carson Jr. on drums. It will perform from 7-9.

Fireworks will cap the day.

Admission to the park is free. Admission to the pool is free for borough residents and pass holders, and $10 for all others.
