Roberto Clemente Museum Celebration

Your second stop for the Pittsburgh Hispanic Heritage Festival takes you into the Lawrenceville neighborhood to the Roberto Clemente Museum. From 1-4 p.m. on Sept. 30 they're hosting a 3,000th Hit Open House: Día de Bomba Y Plena. Both floors of the museum, a tribute to the Pittsburgh Pirates legend and Puerto Rican native Roberto Clemente, will be open with displays and exhibits honoring Clemente's life and docents on hand to help tell the story behind each artifact and the connection to his legacy.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to Taller Comunidad La Goyco, a Puerto Rican non-profit organization that develops cultural, community and health initiatives in the area where Clemente began his professional baseball journey.
