Kid Tunes at Noon in Kollen Park
FRIDAY, July 6
Kollen Park Bandshell
We're the opening act for the Huntington Bank Kid Tunes at Noon concert on Friday!
Come join us at 11:40 am for a fun event. We'll also be there with information on the summer reading program, if you have yet to sign up.
We're excited for the show at noon. Here's a bit about the performer, who promises to "inspire like a rock star":
Few presenters have been compared to both Dale Carnegie and David Bowie. Fewer still have the honor of being called "part Monty Python, part Dr. Seuss" by the Washington Post. Thaddeus Rex, a PBS veteran, left his segment on the Emmy Award Winning show, 'The Friday Zone' to create the 'Read Like a Rock Star' program and went on to inspire over a million kids across America to learn to love reading & writing.
