March for Parks "Heritage Families"

This year marks Westmoreland County's 250th anniversary and to commemorate this occasion March for Parks would like to celebrate families who are from families who lived and shaped our County's history for 100 years or more.  Some of these families may even date back to 1773 when the newly formed Westmoreland County!  

Please come join in the fun, and support your County parks and trails while doing so.  If you believe you may be from one of the Heritage families, please come to the March where you will have an opportunity to meet others from these families with deep roots, search old maps for familiar names, and share your family's story around a campfire or in a 250th anniversary journal. 

Other Fun Activities:

  • Drone Q&A with the Mon Valley RC Air Club
  • Dog Contest - every dog is a winner!
  • Kid's Olympic Games and Activities
  • Historic re-enactments from throughout Westmoreland County's 250 years
What is the March for Parks?
