University of Pittsburgh faculty, staff, and students and their families are invited to Pitt’s 21st annual Kennywood Picnic Day on Saturday, July 30, from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m.

Pitt’s Staff Association Council (SAC), which is coordinating the event, is selling discounted tickets for the Kennywood event—as well as for other Western Pennsylvania water and amusement parks.

The price of an all-day FunDay Pass and catered meal at Kennywood on July 30 is $22. For seniors 55 years and older, the price for the pass and catered meal is $15. Children ages 2 and younger are admitted for free. Tickets are on sale in the William Pitt Student Union through July 29; payment must be made in cash.

SAC is also selling discounted tickets to Kennywood for use on other days this summer; each ticket costs $23. There is an additional $10 fee at the door if the tickets are used on weekends in July or August.

Discounted tickets to Sandcastle Waterpark in Homestead and Idlewild in Ligonier are also available in the William Pitt Student Union. Sandcastle Waterpark passes are $20 each, Idlewild FunDay passes, $23 each. Both parks’ passes are valid any day of the 2011 season, with no surcharge.
