The PHCA has a couple of cool things planned for Halloween and we’re calling for residents to join us. Whether you are interested in helping with traffic calming efforts or just want a chance to show off a really great Halloween costume, we’ve got something for you.

On Thursday, October 30, we’ll be participating in the Bloomfield Halloween parade leading a group of Polish Hill residents and friends and a brass band including Lungs Face Feet and members of the May Day Marching Band.  This will be the third year we’ve participated in the parade and this year, we’d like to take an even bigger group to represent Polish Hill.  If you have kids who would like to be in a parade, you and your friends or family have an idea for a fun costume, a float, a drill team, or if you just want to come along and help hand out candy, we’d love to have you there.  It would be great to have Polish Hill really represent in the biggest and best nighttime parade in Pittsburgh!

And on Friday, October 31 the PHCA will be doing a traffic calming event from 4:00 – 6:30 p.m. Volunteers will be handing out candy to safe drivers to remind them to slow down while passing through Polish Hill.  Volunteers will be stationed at Melwood and Finland and (if enough people volunteer) on Dobson street, either at Herron Avenue or at Hancock street.  We did this last year and got a really great response.  There will be a meeting for traffic calming volunteers at the PHCA office on Monday, Oct 20 at 6:30 p.m.

For more information on either the parade or the traffic calming, call us at 412.681.1950, or email leslie@phcapgh.org.
