Pittsburgh to Be Lit Blue in Honor and Recognition of the 1821 Bicentennial

PITTSBURGH, PA – On March 22, Mayor William Peduto and the City of Pittsburgh, responded in the affirmative to the request on behalf of the Greek-American community of Western PA to light up the city and its main buildings Blue on the evenings of March 25-27 (Thursday-Saturday) in commemoration of the Bicentennial of the Greek Revolution, and, more importantly, in gratitude to the Greek-American community of Western PA for their history and shaping of the area.
