WTCI will host Family Day, a free annual event, on Sunday from 1-4 p.m. at the community PBS station. The station is at 7540 Bonnyshire Dr., behind the Bonny Oaks Drivers Service Center.
Activities will include a petting zoo, touring a Chattanooga Fire Department fire engine, face painting, games, and activities and demonstrations from the station’s community education partners such as Belvoir Christian Academy and UnifiEd. There will be photo meet and greet opportunities with Clifford, Curious George, Super Why! and Word Girl. Participants may learn about the programs, games and apps for PBS KIDS friends at this free event.
Guests are invited to bring a gently-used book for a swap to benefit HCDE schools and a canned good item or socks to support the Chattanooga Community Kitchen.
Green screen activities, storybook reading with the Bookmark Fairy and music from the Scenic City Chorus will entertain children and parents as they tour the community PBS station, engage in PBS KIDS activities and learn about PBSLearningMedia.org resources with a special historic puppet visitor from the Wayne-O-Rama installation.
PBS is America’s largest classroom and 81 percent of parents agree that PBS KIDS strongly supports preparing their children for school. WTCI, with support from sponsors and partnerships with family and education-based organizations and agencies, engages actively in supporting students and families across the region with resources to encourage success in school.
