Chamber making preparations for Celebrate Monroeville event

| Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

The Monroeville Area of Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for the ninth annual Celebrate Monroeville event.

The Sept. 19 celebration — which will take place at the Monroeville Convention Center from 4 to 8:30 p.m. — will feature samples from local restaurants in the Taste of Monroeville showcase, while the Marketplace Monroeville will feature local businesses' products and services.

Scheduled on the performance stage this year are the Gateway High School marching band, Gateway cheerleaders and the Lily Wine Affair. Also, a cast of mascots and costumed characters will circulate throughout the exhibit hall.

More than 250 merchants and restaurant vendors have signed on to participate. Last year, more than 3,000 people attended.

Admission is $10 for adults and $7 for students and people over the age of 62. One extra “taste” ticket will be awarded to attendees who support the food drive.

Free additional parking and shuttle service will be available in the Monroeville Mall parking lot across from Goodyear Tire, adjacent to Macy's.

For more information, call 412-856-0622.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
