Electric Company's Shock to Headline PBS KIDS in the Park

FREE Family Festival on Saturday, June 9 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Military Park

June 2012

Join WFYI at PBS KIDS in the Park, presented by Marsh Supermarkets, on Saturday, June 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Military Park in White River State Park. This free, fun, family festival is sure to delight children of all ages with non-stop entertainment, including Shock from The Electric Company.

Shock, played by vocal percussionist and comedian Chris Sullivan, is a contemporary Buster Keaton with a wide-open sweetness and a relentless imagination. Shock works in the Electric Diner and occasionally helps in the decoding of words there. He does so without skipping a beat, in fact he often provides the beat. His freestanding segments on The Electric Company help drive home the curriculum of the show.

In addition to the Shock, the day will be filled with non-stop entertainment on three stages, and opportunities to meet some of your favorite PBS KIDS walkaround characters. There will also be numerous hands-on activities for families of all ages to discover.

There's no need to make reservations or purchase tickets. PBS KIDS in the Park is WFYI Public Media's gift back to the Central Indiana community. Mark your calendar and plan to enjoy a day in Military Park with your family and WFYI on June 9. Visit wfyi.org for more information leading up to the event.
