Pittonkatonk, Pittsburgh’s “May Day Brass Bar-B-Que” steps off Saturday in the Veteran’s Pavilion in Schenley Park.

Rich Randall, co-director of Pittonkatonk, describes the free event as a cross between a festival, and a family reunion. He and co-director Pete Spynda came up with the idea a couple years ago, and it's since taken off.

Pittonkatonk takes place from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday.
