By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Wednesday was "National Superhero Day" and UPMC Children's Hospital celebrated in a big way.

Superheroes scaled the building to wash some windows and bring a smile to the patients and families in the hospital.

The window washers even had fun giveaways with superhero-themed masks and capes.

Even with the special window washers, hospital staff said that superheroes walk the halls of the hospital every single day.

"When you really think about superheroes, it's about role models, it's about people that save the day, it's about people that protect us," said Diane Hupp, the Chief Nursing Officer at UPMC Children's. "We have everyday superheroes every single day."

The Dream Big Studio also hosted a superhero-themed bingo and cooking show.
