The 2013 L.L.Bean Bootmobile Outdoor Discovery Tour comes to Pittsburgh this summer with the first-ever “Outdoor Discovery Day” on Schenley Plaza. The event is part of a summer-long effort by L.L.Bean to inspire families to spend more time outdoors and provide an opportunity to try a new outdoor activity. The event will include an appearance by the L.L.Bean Bootmobile, a larger-than-life sized vehicle in the form of the famous Bean Boot.
The L.L.Bean Bootmobile, a larger-than-life version of the iconic Bean Boot, will return to Pittsburgh to host the first-ever "Outdoor Discovery Day" on Schenley Plaza on Saturday, June 29, as part of L.L.Bean's summer-long Outdoor Discovery Tour. (Photo: Business Wire)
