More than a race

The 27th annual Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure begins at 6:30 a.m. Sunday. There is a Kids Dash and a 5K Run and Walk. The race honors and celebrates people whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. It is the organization’s largest fundraiser. Komen Greater Pennsylvania serves 53 counties and has raised nearly $25 million to help fund local breast health education, screening, and treatment initiatives. Organizers expect 18,000 people.

A magical event

Lee Terbosic’s “In Plain Sleight” is an interactive performance of magic, comedy, illusion, sleight of hand, mind reading and story. The 75-minute show takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Liberty Magic, an intimate, speakeasy performance space in Downtown Pittsburgh

The audience becomes part of the show with several opportunities to participate. Terbosic is an internationally touring magician, comedian, daredevil and entertainer from Pittsburgh. He is the co-star of Discover Science Channel’s show “Houdini’s Last Secret’s,” a four-part television series that uncovers incredible secrets about Harry Houdini’s life, family, magic and science behind some of his biggest stunts and escapes.

More than music, but a lot of music

The event is from 1 to 11 p.m. on Saturday at the Vietnam Veterans Pavilion in Schenley Park. It was established as a free community event in 2014 by inviting local and national community brass bands, world music performers, and activists to convene. More than a dozen bands will perform throughout the day. Attendees are invited to bring food.

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 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.
