What a super lineup! PAN runs a great show, one of the best in the country. The venue is very accessible, just a couple miles off the
Pennsylvania Turnpike. Fall colors should be in bloom throughout the region. The convention center is on the grounds of Monroeville Mall,
and shopping, restaurants and lodging are plentiful. If you haven't been to one, this year's a great time to check it out.
