Penn Hills Parks and Recreation is gearing up for its fifth-annual Summerfest coming Aug. 3.

“It’s a positive event for our community,” said John Scaglione, assistant superintendent of the municipality’s public works and parks and recreation departments. “We’d like to bring some good news to Penn Hills. This is a great event the whole family can come out to.”

The Penn Hills Summerfest will be held from 3 to 9 p.m. Aug. 3 at Turner Friendship Park along Hunter Road.

There will be games, food trucks, live music, a petting zoo and fireworks.

Scaglione said people can expect traditional carnival games and the petting zoo will include miniature horses, donkeys, mules, miniature llamas, sheep, goats, bunnies, ducks and chickens.

There will also be bounce houses, he said.

This Indecision, a Pittsburgh rock cover band, will headline the festival – hitting the stage at 8 p.m. and playing until the fireworks are ignited, around 9:20 p.m.

Other acts include Evan Dean, Elias Khori Band and Royce Band.

The food will come from local food trucks, including Truckin’ Fresh, Oakmont BBQ, Vagabond Tacos, Bulldawgs and Brusters Ice Cream.

The event is free and open to the public.

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.
