Eventapalooza 2022

Saturday, October 15, 2022

WPSU hosted its annual Eventapalooza family event on Saturday, October 15, 2022. The event’s theme was creativity and the PBS KIDS show Pinkalicious and Peterrific. More than 600 people came to the event to spend family time at the activity tables. We thank our community partners and event sponsors who made this a wonderful day for all. Each child received a take-home bag with a book, a PBS KIDS booklet with home activities, and other goodies from our exhibitors.

Our next station event will be the Multicultural Children’s Festival, planned for April 1, 2023. To be sure to receive notices about all PBS KIDS events at the station and in the community subscribe to WPSU’s Families and Educators email that is delivered the last Thursday of each month.
