W. Pa. parks announce summer events

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The National Park Service has announced a series of summer events at five western Pennsylvania parks.

The Park Service says over 50 special events are planned for the Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site, Flight 93 National Memorial, Fort Necessity National Battlefield, Friendship Hill National Historic Site and the Johnstown Flood National Memorial.

On May 31 the Johnstown Flood National Memorial will commemorate the 124th Anniversary of the Great Flood of 1889. Admission is free, and at the end of the day a ceremony will honor the memories of those who perished with the lighting of 2,209 luminaries from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
