A 760 horsepower 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 is on display at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix this year.

It’s expected to be a scorcher, but at least the rain has moved out so we can enjoy one of the many events happening this weekend. Here’s what’s going on in Pittsburgh.

Revved up

Start your engines. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is upon us.

This weekend’s events include the international car show from 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and the Schenley Park race day from 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday.

This year’s grand prix is celebrating the Shelby and Mustang. The event benefits the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Merakey Allegheny Valley School.

Flying high

If you were hoping to catch Bridgeville native Lori Eve Marinacci’s performance as Wendy Darling in the Pittsburgh CLO’s “Peter Pan,” then this weekend is your last chance.

The show is being performed at Benedum Center through Sunday. Tickets start at $27.

Songs include “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow” and “Never Never Land.”

Charmed, we’re sure

Feeling semi-charmed?

Throw it back to the early 2000s when Third Eye Blind and Jimmy Eat World play Stage AE on Saturday as part of the Summer Gods Tour. They’ll perform with special guest Ra Ra Riot.

“Everything, everything will be just fine.”

Tickets are available via Ticketmaster and the Stage AE Box Office.

Force effect

Experience Star Wars like never before when the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra presents “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.”

The performance features screenings of the complete film with Oscar-winning composer John Williams’ musical score performed live to the film, led by conductor Lawrence Loh.

Tickets start at $50.


On the right track

Greenberg’s Great Train & Toy Show, one of the longest running train shows, returns to the convention center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Check out about a dozen operating train displays and 100 vendors who will be on hand.

Admission is $10 on Saturday and $9 Sunday. Children 11 and younger get in free. Parking is free.

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.
