Free family event celebrates the neighborly values of Mister Rogers

Posted by Mary Riker on

PENSACOLA, Fla., March 13, 2019 ― It will be another beautiful day in the neighborhood when WSRE hosts Pensacola’s second annual Be My Neighbor Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. This free family-fun event focuses on early learning, health and safety resources for families, and the neighborly values of Mister Rogers.

Headlining the event are show characters, Daniel Tiger and Katerina Kittycat, and PBS KIDS musical co-host Mr. Steve (Steve Roslonek). Mr. Steve will perform three shows in the WSRE Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio. Other activities will include character meet and greets, story time with WSRE TV personalities, and over 40 indoor and outdoor games and exhibitors. 

During the national PBS KIDS schedule, Mr. Steve performs interactive songs that reinforce the curriculum themes of shows likeCurious George and Clifford the Big Red Dog. He is a Parent’s Choice Gold Award-winning artist who writes each of his songs to add value to a child’s life. 

The Be My Neighbor Day theme comes from the children’s show, “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,”—the animated recreation of Fred Rogers’ original Neighborhood of Make-Believe focused on school readiness and social-emotional learning.
