Great American Banana Split Celebration (Photos)
Photos by Mike Pedicone and Ernie Sistek

Six-year-old Emme Funari of Murrysville loved watching the fire eater on Saturday at the 2015 Valley Dairy Great American Banana Split Celebration presented by Excela Health. She took in the event with her mother, Mira, and siblings, Peter, 1, Zoe, 4, and Lily, 9. In the other photo, “Ice Cream Joe” (Joe Greubel) and Nell Strickler, daughter-in-law of banana split founder Dr. David Strickler, share the scrumptious dessert Saturday afternoon at the downtown Valley Dairy store. Business was good the entire weekend and especially Saturday when customers were lined up at the door waiting for a table and lined up at the outside pickup window where they could order a famous banana split or a delicious Valley Dairy banana split ice cream cone.

Brian and Jennifer Cunkelman want a judge to reverse their daughter’s exclusion from the private Valley School of Ligonier this school year for bringing the Swiss army knife to the concert last school year, when she was a student there, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported.
