PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Some of the biggest attractions in southwestern Pennsylvania will be free in just a few weeks for RADical Days.

R.A.D., also known as the Regional Asset District, invests in libraries, parks, and other cultural centers around the area.

Half of the extra one percent you pay in sales tax in Allegheny County supports that investment.

"All of these are places that are supported via taxpayer funding, all throughout the year by R.A.D., and they're able to show their appreciation by saying: 'We're going to open up for free,'" said James Santelli, R.A.D.'s Communications Manager.

"We really think that RADical Days 2022 will be bigger and better than ever before and the county concert series will be part of that," Santelli added.
