This morning, Kennywood Park held their Grand Re-Opening ceremony for Noah’s Ark! After an extensive refurbishment project over the winter months, the Ark has returned to its classic fun-house feel and the infamous whale’s mouth entrance has returned!
Appropriately, Kennywood invited two representatives from “all things that make Pittsburgh Pittsburgh” to the ceremony to board the Ark two-by-two… Pittsburgh style! Representatives from various area organizations were in attendance, including the Pirates, Penguins, Ballet Theatre, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, National Aviary, Eat’n Park, Rick Sebak, the mayors of Duquesne and Pittsburgh, and more!
Most importantly, Noah himself was a part of the ceremony! Noah was played by none other than Pittsburgh Dad, telling a very comical tale of how the Ark came to be. Be sure to check out the video below for his hilarious speech, as well as the full Grand Re-Opening ceremony!
