Visitors gather outside the McCandless/Northern Allegheny Heritage Center for its grand opening on May 20, 2017. The town is hosting a festival on Saturday, May 18, 2019 to mark the museum’s second anniversary.

The Town of McCandless will mark the second anniversary of the opening of the McCandless/Northern Allegheny Heritage Center with a festival on Saturday, May 18.

Festivities, which run from 1 to 4 p.m., will include a display of public safety vehicles and the opportunity for kids to “touch-a-truck,” military and sports memorabilia displays, an interactive recyclable art show and light refreshments.

Jim Vinski, a volunteer with the Heritage Center, will conduct a presentation on World War II artifacts beginning at 2 p.m.

At 6:30 p.m., the center will host “Kit’s Birthday Sleepover.”

Children will be allowed to bring their dolls and stuffed animals to help American Girl doll Kit celebrate her “birthday.”

The kids will enjoy games and stories, get a tour of the center and hand-craft a sleeping bag for their dolls, who will spend the night at the center in their new sleeping bags.

The kids will return on Sunday for a picnic breakfast and to see what their dolls where up to overnight.

Space is limited for “Kit’s Birthday Sleepover,” which costs $20 per child to participate.

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.
