When hunger strikes, don't fret – we've got you covered with delectable food options from food trucks like Prime Time Food Truck and Sweet Dreams À La Mode.
Now, this is one of my favorite parts of Kids Fest. You can meet some of your favorite PBS characters up close and personal! Daniel Tiger and Katerina Kittycat, provided by the Rotary Club of Evansville, will be there to spread joy and laughter. But that's not all – Kids Fest will also host special meet-and-greet sessions with beloved characters like Molly of Denali, Zeke from Work it Out Wombats!, and the iconic Clifford the Big Red Dog.
For those who can't get enough of the silver screen, WNIN has a cinematic treat in store. The film "Andy & Elmer's Apple Dumpling Gang" will grace the stage twice between 10 am and 2 pm. And if that's not enough, stick around after Kids Fest for the heartwarming "The Daniel Tiger Movie: Won't You Be My Neighbor" screening at 2 p.m. They will even provide popcorn and water to enhance your viewing experience. These films, courtesy of the Rotary Club of Evansville, are sure to add an extra layer of fun to an already incredible day.
