About the Summer Storm
The Nine Mile Run Watershed Association Summer Storm event will take place on Saturday, June 20, in Frick Park from 6:30-11 p.m.
Those interested may purchase a Solstice ticket for $100 or a Twilight ticket for $35 prior to the event. Twilight tickets will be available at the door for $40. All proceeds will go towards the NMRWA initiative to improve the Nine Mile Run watershed ecosystem.
A Solstice ticket is the Summer Storm’s VIP ticket. You can enter the event promptly at 6:30 and enjoy an extra few hours of fun. Bill Deasy, Donora, and DJ Hank D will provide entertainment over the course of the evening. Complimentary food from some of the city’s favorite food trucks will also be available.
A Twilight ticket means you can enter the Summer Storm at 8 p.m. to enjoy drinks, light snacks, and the performances by Donora and DJ Hank D. The food trucks will stick around for the rest of the event so ticket-holders may purchase food if the light fare provided with your ticket needs a boost.
The Nine Mile Run Watershed Association says the Summer Storm is a very well-attended event, and that parking–in the Fern Hollow lot at the bottom of Lancaster Avenue–is “plentiful, but not unlimited.” They suggest carpooling with friends, walking, or riding your bike, just in case!
About Nine Mile Run Watershed Association
The Nine Mile Run Watershed Association (NMRWA) was formed in 2001 to restore and protect the Nine Mile Run watershed, a 6.5 square mile area located in Pittsburgh’s East End.
The NMRWA involves community members in improving the health of the watershed to share the belief that everyone should be conscious of our impact on the environment. Outreach and educational programs help local leaders and volunteers learn ways to care for the watershed in their everyday lives.
Watershed tours, educational workshops, promoting resident-driven community gardens and street tree plantings, and advocacy for the protection of Nine Mile Run are among the programs developed by NMRWA to work towards its goal.
