Photos from the 2022 Summer Camp Expo & Family Fun Fair

By Emily Papa, Macaroni KID South Hills of Pittsburgh Publisher April 11, 2022

We had such a blast this weekend at our Summer Camp & Family Fun Expo, meeting so many of our readers face to face and watching their families having interacting with our vendors and entertainers. All the planning and long days are totally worth it when we get to see the smiling faces of all your kiddos and get messages like this from our readers: 

If you didn't make it out, here are some highlights from the day:

We started by brightening up the venue with a splash of color from The Cheerful Balloon Company. This 20 foot organic balloon arch was oogled over all day long!

Once the decorating was done, it was time for the fun and games to begin. The entertainment wasn't lacking for anyone - Princess and Superhero Parties Pittsburgh held the gym down with a cool digital photo booth and fun games like tug of war.

We had summer camps and vendors with incredible displays and lots of fun for everyone! Thank you to all of our vendors who showed up for the event! 

Unfortunately, we did have some last minute vendor cancellations. If you are looking for more camp info on any of our vendors and more, please be sure to check out our Summer Camp Guide for information on over 100 Pittsburgh camps!
