The block party is an event you surely will not want to miss this week!
We’re taking over the one and only Heinz Field—home of the Pittsburgh Steelers—today, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
In addition to fantastic food, we’ve lined up country singer Bryan Cole for the evening’s entertainment, along with a magician, clowns and face painters.
Athletes and guests will also have the chance to explore the Coca-Cola Great Hall at Heinz Field, which houses five Lombardi Trophy column displays and other Steelers memorabilia, as well as 20 different murals centered around the team and the history of western Pennsylvania football. The hall boasts football equipment and personal mementos of legendary players for the team. And for those of you who are Steelers fans, the gift shop will be open.
The Gateway Clipper fleet, Pittsburgh’s premier cruise line, will have two of their largest boats shuttling athletes from the dock at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center to Heinz Field starting at 3:30 p.m. Buses will also be available, running on a continuous loop during the event.
Four thousand six hundred fifty-seven miles, six time zones, two connecting flights and a shuttle bus ride to the Omni William Penn in downtown Pittsburgh.
