More than 300 gathered to kick off the NEXT 3 Days celebration on the Hilltop with a lively party at RE360 Industry on Industry in Allentown on Friday night, followed by a Saturday street fest that attracted upwards of 1,000. A community-driven event, NEXT 3 Days Hilltop showcased the up-and-coming neighborhoods of Allentown and Mt. Washington, capped by an Open House tour on Sunday. We feature the event here in photos, from the NEXT 3 Fades—that’s the barbershop showdown—and the artists’ takeover of Boggs and Bailey, to the electrifying performance of Beauty Slap.
NEXT 3 Days is an event series from the City of Pittsburgh, the URA and NEXTpittsburgh with a mission to shine a spotlight on emerging neighborhoods in the city that offer affordable housing. It’s a great way to get better acquainted with the city we all love. The first N3D was in Troy Hill last October and the next one is scheduled for Garfield this fall. A big thanks to Revive Marketing Group and our many wonderful partners in Mt. Washington and Allentown for making the event such a success. We’ve made friends for life.
