WFYI's annual one of a kind family festival

May 01, 2011

Join WFYI at Letís Meet PBS KIDS in the Park, presented by Marsh, on Saturday, June 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Military Park in White River State Park.

Creature teachers Chris and Martin Kratt, creators of the award-winning Krattsí Creatures and Emmy-winning Zoboomafoo, will headline this yearís entertainment. The brothers recently launched their new Wild Kratts animated series (weekdays at 2 p.m. on WFYI 1). The show transforms the real life zoologists into animated versions of themselves, allowing them to visit wild animals in their little seen habitats and showcase key science concepts along the way.

This yearís theme at Letís Meet PBS KIDS in the Park is Explore Your World. In addition to the Kratt Brothers, 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.

Thereís no need to make reservations or purchase tickets. Letís Meet PBS KIDS in the Park is WFYI Public Mediaís 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 11. Visit wfyi.org for more information leading up to the event.

Designed especially for preschoolers, this groundbreaking energetic series is all about that great moment of discovery when a kid meets an animal for the first time. Using music, songs and sounds from around the world, the series teaches children how to respect and care for the creatures with which they share the planet. Zoboomafoo (pronounced zah-BOO-mah-foo) stars the Kratt brothers Ė Martin and Chris Ė and a playful and curious little lemur named Zoboomafoo. Through live action and the wonders of puppetry, animation and claymation, Zoboomafoo is every little kidís dream: a wonderful talking animal whoís a special friend.
