It's summer, it's the weekend, and there's plenty to do in Pittsburgh. Here are just a few suggestions for summer fun in the city.


David London's Magic Outside the Box combines magic with storytelling, comedy, puppetry, surrealism, philosophy, and that which cannot be defined. Aug. 4-5, Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre,


The 3rd Annual Pittsburgh VegFest features vegan food, wellness vendors, a full stage of music, and family activities. Admission is free for the event sponsored by Justice for Animals. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Aug. 5 at Allegheny Commons Park, North Side.


This Saturday KidsPlay moves from Market Square, inside to PPG Place. Activities are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. with Bouncer Blaster, Find Some Flow, and the Calligraphy Guild


The Arcade Comedy Theater 's monthly "Dinner with the Nolens" show features a long-form improv set with theater co-owners and Second City alum Jethro Nolen and Kristy Nolen, who invite another improv duo to dinner, and then all four perform together. 8 p.m. Aug. 5


The EQT Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta goes all day Saturday and Sunday. There's music, jumping dogs, flipping bikes and powerboat races. But the star this year may be the Red Bull Flugtag, which kicks off at 12:30 p.m. Aug. 5. Watch homemade flying machines try to beat the record for free flight.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
