WFYI’s 21st Annual PBS KIDS in the Park Festival Attracts 40,000
WFYI Public Media issued a welcome, and perhaps, long-overdue challenge to Indiana families on June 21: turn off your digital devices (with the exception of your camera), gather the family, and prepare to embark on a memorable adventure at White River State Park. One of the largest PBS KIDS events of its kind in the nation, WFYI’s PBS KIDS in the Park is a unique family celebration, which boasts an array of educational activities that reflect WFYI’s on-going commitment to prepare young children for entry into school. This year, the event attracted more than 40,000 people.
PBS KIDS’ Mr. Steve headlined performances at the event, which also featured appearances by PBS KIDS characters, interactive booths, and activity zones designed to show children that learning can be a fun-filled adventure. Notable activities this year included WFYI’s 5-2-1-0 Countdown to Health with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (healthy families), PNC Grow Up Great Mobile Learning Adventure (early childhood education) and The Allstate Foundation and Points of Light Tent (disaster preparedness), among many others.
An annual gift to the community, WFYI’s PBS KIDS in the Park attracts a wide range of local corporate and foundation support, as well as community partners. Learn more.
