Want to take advantage to visit some of Pittsburgh's greatest assets—for free?
Allegheny Regional Asset District (RAD) is offering the chance to do just that during 2012 RADical Days, which runs from Sept. 20 to Oct. 13.
From the free family activities on Sept. 29 at the Frick Art & Historical Center in Point Breeze to glassblowing demonstrations on Oct. 5 at the Pittsburgh Glass Center in Friendship, RAD days offer indoor and outdoor opportunities at the region's museums, galleries, parks and other cultural venues.
On Oct. 6, you can visit Boyce Mayview Park in Upper St. Clair for creek explorations, birding, insect safaris and crafts, followed by an evening campfire with roasted marshmallows. And, on Oct. 13, you can join the festivities at South Park for a fall Hay Day full of pony rides and food vendors.

Participating assets are not offering free admission every day and guests are advised to check listings for each asset’s free date, times and limitations. Admissions are first-come, first-served. Some admissions require advance reservations. Parking fees might be charged at venue lots.
Since 1994, RAD has funded more than $1.3 billion in grants to places and to organizations that create a positive impact on the lives of residents of and visitors to Allegheny County. RADical Days is a “thank you” to the public for its support of the assets through RAD.
