Race Car Parade & Display

This exciting event will be held in conjunction with the Annual Squirrel Hill Sidewalk Sale – the best deals of the year on clothing, shoes, gifts, and so much more. Throughout the weekend, look for music, special activities, food trucks to supplement local restaurant’s offerings.

Friday’s parade and car show are open to the public and there is no charge to come and watch. This is a great way to meet our drivers, grab some dinner and shop in Squirrel Hill. Please join us for this preview of the cars that will race through Schenley Park on the weekend.
