The World of Little League® Museum and Official Store will be hosting its annual Kids’ Day on Saturday, November 16. Co-hosted by VIA Public Media, Pittston, and partially funded by a grant administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, the event will include arts and crafts, games, interactive experiences, story time, photo opportunities, as well as a visit from Clifford the Big Red Dog of PBS Kids and Little League’s lovable mascot, Dugout.

Attendance to the Kids’ Day event is free and will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside the World of Little League Museum (located at 525 Montgomery Pike, U.S. 15). The museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Every year, our Kids Day event brings an incredible amount of fun, excitement, and joy to the visitors of our Museum and provides local families with a great way to spend their Saturday in Lycoming County,” said Lance Van Auken, Little League Vice President and World of Little League Museum Executive Director. “With a number of activities available and a visit from this year’s special guest, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Kids Day 2019 is shaping up to once again be an exciting day of fun for the whole family.”

Along with the interactive experiences within the Museum, visitors may enjoy Storytime with Debby the Clubhouse Mom, as well as a meet-and-greet opportunity with Dugout and Clifford the Big Red Dog. Parents are encouraged to take photos.

“VIA Public Media is thrilled to be part of Kids Day 2019 at the World of Little League Museum on November 16 and to welcome Clifford the Big Red Dog in celebration of the relaunch of Scholastic Entertainment’s multiple Emmy®-winning preschool series CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG® that debuts on VIA Public Media this December,” said Debby the Clubhouse Mom. “We hope you will come out and meet Clifford the Big Red Dog and enjoy Story Time and Arts and Crafts with me at this great event.”

Along with Little League and VIA, at least 10 other youth service agencies and organizations supporting youth activities or their parents will be in attendance with information tables throughout the museum and activities for the children.
