Welcome to the Chartiers Valley Grab & Go Kids Planner! Each week we assemble a weekend calendar of kid-friendly activities and new places to check out. You're pressed for time, so we're happy to do the research and find the best things to do and places to go, both locally and within reasonable striking distance.
Look for the kids planner each Thursday, and help us build the planner with your own suggestions and tips by adding them to the comment box. This week, shop at a re-sale event or head to a fish fry!
