Friday, Sept. 2

Vintage vehicles, oldies vibes, local bands, pin-up girls, burlesque: good, clean (well, you know) fun.

And when it’s all for a worthy cause – in this case, to raise funds for Boro Women & Family Services (BWFS) – you can feel just fine about getting a little bit adult fun-minded.

This year’s Pin-Up Erie-hosted Penny’s Pin-Up Party – the second event of its kind in as many years – is happening at Cambridge Springs’ historic and beautiful Riverside Inn.

All proceeds from the party will directly benefit BWFS, which provides resources and support to local individuals and families in crisis.

The event features all of the above-mentioned fun, games, and more, including local crafters, vendors, live rockabilly performances by Erie-area favorites The Remnants and Matty B and the Dirty Pickles, and live burlesque shows featuring performers from Cleveland.

Like last year, some of the events – the daytime vintage carnival, for one – are free and open to everyone, while spicier attractions include an admission cost and are for the 21+ crowd only. So be sure to check out some of the Pin-Up Party’s further details before you head south of the city. – Ryan Smith
