PITTSBURGH - Fans had the opportunity to see the Stanley Cup up close and personal in Pittsburgh Monday.
The trophy awarded to the champion of the NHL playoffs is on display for public viewing from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 623 Smithfield St.
“Pretty cool,” said hockey fans Bob and Laurie Taiber.
The viewing is part of Pop-Up Canada, which will be situated in the heart of Pittsburgh for a week and will include family-friendly activities.
“We wanted to bring the Pop-Up here to demonstrate the close ties between the city, commonwealth and Canada and build on the strengths,” said Consul General of Canada John Prato.
Canadian officials said Pennsylvania and Canada do more than $22 billion in trade. Channel 11 has learned that Pittsburgh Canadian companies employ more than 4,000 people.
