If You Hand Out Eat’n Park Smiley Cookies . . .
. . . then your sidewalk activities will be a success! That’s what PHLF staff and volunteers discovered when they handed out 960 mini smiley cookies, compliments of Eat’n Park, on September 8, 9, and 10 to people who were waiting at the downtown bus stop on Liberty Avenue at Tenth Street, from about 3:30 to 6:00 P.M.
PHLF staff and docents involved people in trivia games, cup stacking, and identifying Pittsburgh photos and architectural details. All the activities were provided in conjunction with the Project for Public Spaces’s 18th Annual Pro Walk/Pro Bike/Pro Place Conference. The goal was to enliven a downtown public space, and thanks to Eat’n Park’s cookies, in large, part, we were able to do so,” said Executive Director Louise Sturgess.
