"So Long, Springfield”
is a daylong farewell to the beloved and longest running television show of all time, The Guiding Light. While adoring fans are tearful that the longest running show in history has been cancelled, the “LIGHT” is not completely extinguished. Due to air it’s final episode in mid-September, the show won’t go dark without appropriate fanfare—very much due this beloved soap opera and it’s cherished characters.

"So Long, Springfield” is a once in a lifetime event, featuring ten of The Guiding Light’s most popular stars. Fans will enjoy memorable, up-close-and-personal time with the stars, and have a last opportunity to say goodbye and send good wishes to the real people that portray the characters they’ve come to know and love.

Why Pittsburgh? Because this Pennsylvania city and its suburbs boast possibly the most loyal fan base in the United States…even the actors know it! In fact, each of the actors participating felt that Pittsburgh should be the market for this memorable fan event.

Nice to know that this is happening in Pittsburgh!! Still not happy the show was cancelled. How does a 72 year old broadcast legacy get cancelled?
