All Team GA/GI can say is "WHOA!" We're so happy with our festival line-up we could bungee jump off the Andy Warhol Bridge! A huge section along the Penn Avenue Arts corridor in Friendship/Bloomfield/Garfield/East Lib is brimming with art, tech and entertainment! Almost anywhere you are, there will be a fire performance at dusk. Pick your choice of locations: The Pittsburgh Glass Center @ 5472 Penn has Steel Town Fire; GBBN/EDGE Studios @ 5441 Penn has Pyrotopia, or outdoors at Carl's TV @ Penn and Winebiddle you'll see Sirkus Dayz.
