Window Graphic to Tout Regatta Events

A massive downtown window mural will promote the Three Rivers Regatta this year.

The windows of the Wyndham Grand Hotel will sport a 110-foot graphic of fireworks, powerboats, and the Regatta logo.

Regatta spokesman Michael Dongilli says the mural will also advertise “Circus Orange,” a first-time performance for the Fourth of July weekend event.

“They do performances in North America, but not at the Regatta before, and not in Pittsburgh,” says Dongilli. “So, this will be a never-before-seen show here in this particular area. It’s a one-hour performance that sort of caps all three days of the event, starting at around 8:45, so you can take full advantage of the pyrotechnic effects that they integrate into their performance.”

Dongilli says the graphic will complement a large banner hanging at the Portal Bridge in Point State Park.

Palmer Products of Monroeville will install the colorful window mural over the next three days.
