Friday marks two big events: National Pizza Day and the deadline for the state legislature to create a new congressional map and submit it to the governor. (However, lawmakers said Thursday they would not be able to meet the Friday deadline.)

Ask a Pittsburgher where the best pizza in the city is and you’re bound to get a different answer depending on which pie lover you ask.

For anyone looking to make an informed decision, more than a dozen pizza shops will come together May 14 for the second Steel City Pizza Fest in Lawrenceville.

  “Basically, it’s everything you would want to do in a park on a Saturday afternoon, all rolled into one,” said Jessica Winter-Franklin, founder of Second Shift Crafters and lead organizer of the first “Spring It On” community event.

On Saturday, Winter-Franklin will join local D.J. Michael Devine to host Spring It On from noon to 6 p.m. in Arsenal Park in Lawrenceville. The event will feature artists, craft-makers, musicians, and spoken word poets from around Lawrenceville.

“We are absolutely, 100 percent local,” Winter-Franklin said.
