Hot Diggity Dog Days return to Canonsburg
April 28, 2013 by James
‘Hot Diggity Dog Days Festival’ was originally planned to celebrate the 100th birthday of Perry Como, who was born in Canonsburg. It is returning this May as a celebration of oldies’ music.
The festival, which will celebrate the culture of the 50s and 60s, is presented by the Borough of Canonsburg. The old, yet timeless, music will be performed by such groups as Deja Vu, American Pie, and Sugarcane.
In addition to the top tunes, there will be a classic car show, a children’s activity area, food for sale, and arts and crafts vendors. Last year, there was also a sock hop and a scavenger hunt. It should be a great weekend for those who remember the music of the 50s and 60s fondly, or those who have just discovered it, and a great way to introduce the kids to the music of those decades. No doubt it will attract people from all over Peter’s Township.
Organizers of this annual event are likely working with their local printing company to advertise the festival throughout the area, including in nearby McMurray. This might include designing and printing flyers to be distributed to spread the word and ensure that local music lovers pay a visit.
The 2nd annual Hot Diggity Dog Days festival will take place in Canonsburg over the weekend of May 18 – 19. Admission is free to all events, and a portion of the proceeds from the event will go to local charities. Those interested in becoming vendors can call 724-745-1800.
