PPG Place opens holiday exhibits


November 20, 2007

PPG Place's annual holiday exhibits will be open Downtown through January 7 and are free to the public. Reservations are not needed.

The splendor of the holidays comes alive with “Spirits of Giving Around the World” exhibit at the Wintergarden, featuring a display of life-size Santas and original paintings that capture Christmas folklore and fantasy. PPG's spectacular 32-foot tree adorned with ornaments symbolic of this season is also on display here.

Also on display is a collection of gingerbread houses created by area students, individuals and other organizations, surrounded by a unique train display created by local artist Don Jones.

A variety of family activities will be offered at the Food Court at Two PPG Place immediately following the City of Pittsburgh's “Celebrate the Season Parade” on Saturday, Nov. 24.

A Magical Musical Holiday Show featuring Ken Thompson, man of a thousand songs, and his magical friend Mrs. Claus, will take place in two shows, at noon and 2 p.m. Don-Na the Snow Queen will stroll about from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. making unique balloon creations, and children are invited to stop by the holiday workshop and make a free holiday ornament. All activities are free and no reservation is required.

Visit PPG Place throughout December and hear local entertainers perform the sounds of the season. Visit for a complete listing of free performers, dates and times.
