Wondering what to do this weekend? Canon-McMillan Patch has got you covered.
Here’s a look at what’s happening around town this weekend:
Football Season Begins
Many area high schools are playing their first football game of the school year on Friday, Aug. 30, including Canon Mac. The game is at 7:30 p.m. at Penn Hills High School. For a full high school football schedule, see the WPIAL website.
Two favorites—one for action and one for teen angst—are playing nearby at Dormont's Hollywood Theater this weekend. "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) and "The Breakfast Club" (1985) are on the marquee. More information is available on The Hollywood Theater website.

Allegheny County Music Festival
A $20-per-car suggested donation is collected at the gate. Tickets for a 50-50 raffle are sold throughout the concert. Proceeds benefit children and youth served through the Department of Human Services and/or Juvenile Probation.

The Living Dead Festival
Ahhh, zombies! The Living Dead Festival is being held Friday, Aug. 30 and Saturday Aug. 31 in Evans City’s EDCO Park. Located just outside Cranberry, Evans City is where scenes from the cult classic “Night of the Living Dead” were filmed.
The event will feature celebrity guest signing sessions, including meet and greets with Night of the Living Dead actors Judith O’Dea and Russ Streiner.
There also will be a celebration at the iconic Evans City Cemetery chapel, where parts of the movie were filmed, and a screening of Night of the Living Dead.
