WPBS-TV, Watertown PBS and Boldt Castle on Heart Island, present the fourth annual Family Fun Day, Saturday, June 16th from 10am-3pm. WPBS-TV, in association with Boldt Castle, will host a family based event featuring characters from popular PBS Kids television programming including Princess Presto, Nature Cat, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Curious George, Splash, Daniel Tiger and Katerina Kittycat. Upon arrival at Boldt Castle, children receive their Passport to Fun and engage in several activity stations hosted by PBS Kids characters. Children can plant a flower in the Family Fun Day garden, create a music maker, participate in the parachute game, and visit their favorite characters. Each character has their own educational activity station for children to engage in and a free book is given to each family upon their departure from the island. Families also enjoy the music and performances by Stage Notes. Stage Notes is a local theater company comprised of students in grades 9-12. Their purpose is to help students see their passion for musical theater and make a difference in the community.
