Saturday's schedule will feature a special appearance by University of Pittsburgh men's basketball head coach Jamie Dixon from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.** Dixon has been the head men's basketball coach at the University of Pittsburgh since 2003, and during that time he has compiled a 238-77 record.  He has led the Panthers to eight NCAA Tournament appearances, including an appearance in the Elite Eight in 2009, and has won numerous national coaching awards.

Additional appearances on Saturday include professional bass angler Skeet Reese from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.*** and fly-fishing author and lifelong Pennsylvania resident Charles Meck from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.***

Professional second baseman and Pittsburgh native Neil Walker will round out the week's festivities with an in-store appearance on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.****  Walker was one of the National League's top rookies in 2010 when he hit .296.  In 2011, he placed among the league leaders in doubles, and this season set a career-high in home runs. Pittsburgh Penguins mascot " Iceburgh" will also be meeting and greeting customers on Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.***
