Elements of Summer: Wind

Featured Programs & Events

June 21, 2018

In ancient Greece people believed that the world was made up of four elements: wind, water, earth, and fire. Join us as we honor these ancient elements and how they combine to make summer such a special time of the year. Each day we’ll explore a different natural element through art making, performances, story times, and more! Our celebration will end on Sunday, June 24thwith Kick Off to Summer Free Day and Allegheny Solarfest.
