If the Pierogies are confirmed to attend your event and there is a change in the date for any reason, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate the new date. If any changes occur after the date has been confirmed, please notify the Pittsburgh Pirates as soon as possible.
A PLACE TO CHANGE (NOT A PUBLIC RESTROOM). The Pierogies do not come dressed in costume to the appearance. Due to the size of the costumes, they will need a large, private room that is indoors to change into costume. Bathrooms, vans/vehicles or facilities where they can be seen in or out of costume are not acceptable.
REST PERIODS.Due to the extreme heat inside of the costume, a rest period after 20 - 25 minutes is needed, depending on the type of appearance. After 5 - 10 minutes in a private room, the Pierogy will continue the appearance.
SPECIAL REQUESTS. The Pierogies are more than happy to adapt to your event. If you have a special ceremony or program that you would like them to be involved in, please contact the Manager of Promotions to discuss. Otherwise, the Pierogies will go about their usual program, which consists of shaking hands and taking pictures with your guests.
MASCOT HELPER. The sponsoring organization MUST supply the Pierogies with a designated helper. This person will meet the Pierogies upon their arrival, show them where to change and provide water whenever it is needed.
THE PIEROGIES RUN ON A TIGHT SCHEDULE. We are excited for the Pierogies to be a part of your event. Please do not ask them to stay longer than the scheduled time.
