Free ‘Be My Neighbor’ event at The Parklands
Families are invited to join KET at the Woodland Pavilion at Broad Run Park for the free “Be My Neighbor Day,” which builds on values and themes presented in the PBS KIDS series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.
Sunday, October 13 from 1 to 4 pm.
Registration is required.
KET has informed us that you can register at the event, all are welcome but there will be a registration process when you are there.
Enjoy nature walks, crafts, and meet-and-greets with caring neighbors including Louisville-area first responders and other community helpers, such as librarians, postal workers and more.
Inspired by the themes of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, “Be My Neighbor Day” teaches children the importance of being a caring neighbor.
Enjoy a special appearance by Daniel Tiger and Katarina Kittycat, crafts, music, and the company of first responders and other caring neighbors in the community. To promote the importance of environmental conservation and tree canopies, children can take their own tree seedlings back to their neighborhoods to plant.
Bring your sweaters to the Fred Rogers Sweater Drive
Remember Mister Rogers’ iconic sweater? In honor of 50th anniversaries for both Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and KET this year, Be My Neighbor Day will include a Fred Rogers Sweater Drive. If your family has extra sweaters you don’t need, please bring them with you and donate them when you arrive.
