Get a gander at what’s opening soon in the area.
It seems like everywhere you look in Cranberry these days there’s a crane or a bulldozer at work on a new development. According to township figures, about $120 million worth of construction has been completed, is underway or is planned for Cranberry in 2012. About 1.25 million square feet of non-residential space will be added to the area this year, including construction of retail, restaurant, office and religious buildings. For those curious about what’s under construction in Cranberry this month, we’ve put together a handy list—and some photos. The Hilton Garden Inn isn’t the only new hotel in town.

The annual event features 100,000 candy-filled eggs in eight separate hunts.
Thousands of Easter revelers from across the region descended on Victory Family Church Friday and Saturday for its annual Eggstravaganza. Pastor John Nuzzo, founding pastor at Victory, estimated about 6,000 people attended the event, which featured 100,000 candy-filled plastic eggs in eight separate hunts, photos with the Easter Bunny, inflatable rides, temporary tattoos, balloon artists, a puppet show and much more. “It has been a wonderful two days,” Nuzzo said. Since Eggstravaganza, originally held at Cranberry Community Park, began more than a decade ago, Nuzzo said the event has grown each year. Because the event is now so large, attendees park at the nearby Manheim Pittsburgh car lot on Route 19 and board one of the continous …

The Route 19 location will be the first in the Pittsburgh area for the Philadelphia-based car chain.
After about six months of construction, the CarSense on Route 19 in Cranberry is set to open in mid-February. Adjacent to Victory Family Church, the 23,760-square-foot sale facility and car lot is part of a Philadelphia-based used-car business that has three locations in eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The Route 19 store will be the first in the Pittsburgh area. General manager Tim Wright, a University of Pittsburgh graduate, said he’ll move to the area from the Philadelphia region to work at the store. The Cranberry lot will have hundreds of pre-owned cars that are about 1 to 2 years old and with low mileage, he said. Wright said the cars—which will include a variety of makes and models—are packaged with warranties and return polices…

The last weekend before Christmas is filled with carols and a telling of the Nativity story.
Funny, but we can hear the Christmas story hundreds of times and still long to hear it again around this time every year. Which is why we headed to Victory Family Church in Cranberry. The church is offering a musical, dramatic and family-friendly telling of the story of Jesus's birth during a number of special services this weekend. The first takes place at 7 p.m. Friday with the singing of carols, contemporary music and a moving narration of the Christmas story. Other family Christmas services will be held at 4 and 8 p.m. on Saturday and at 9 and 11 a.m. on Sunday. On Christmas Eve, candlelight services will be celebrated at 3, 4:30 and 6 p.m. Just now you're probably wondering, why is there a photo of a glove included in this photo …
