Is Pittsburgh d'town quiet in winter? Are there any festivals? In other words, is the city as vibrant in winter as compared to the rest of the year?

Overall there is probably more going on in the warmer months, but there is still a ton of stuff that happens in the winter months. Light Up Night (kicking off the holiday season) and First Night (New Year's Eve) both involve a lot of festival activity Downtown, and there is a Thanksgiving parade. There are light displays, ice-skating at PPG Place, horse-and-carriage rides, annual holiday-themed performances (e.g., the Nutcracker) at Downtown performing arts venues, activities related to the winter sports teams (both of which play near Downtown), and so forth.

Just wanted to add that the ice rink is very well run and it is a perfect place for younger children to skate. This is an asset that the city should be excited to have.

Oh yeah, and the carriage rides "sell out" quickly. You have to be there about 45 minutes before the office opens.
