Long before there was NickJr., Noggin and the Disney Channel, PBS had the corner on the sandbox of children’s programming. And it’s still the home of such childhood superstars as Elmo, Clifford the Big Red Dog and Curious George.
Your family can meet these and a dozen other characters at this year’s “Let’s Meet PBS Kids in the Park Event,” to be held on Saturday, June 12 at Military Park in White River State Park, downtown Indianapolis.
The event is free and will take place from 10am to 4pm. In addition to character meet-and-greets, three stages will offer up live, non-stop entertainment. Over 40 educational and arts organizations from around Central Indiana will engage your family in hands-on activities.
You can make a weekend out of it by taking advantage of the Let’s Meet PBS Kids in the Park overnight package offered by the Hilton Garden Inn Indianapolis Downtown. For $120, you get:
