Be My Neighbor Day

September 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Celebrate a GRR-ific day at Aurora’s Water Street Mall with PNC Grow Up Great®, SPARK, Fox Valley United Way, WTTW, and Fred Rogers Productions as they welcome Daniel Tiger and his friend Katerina Kittycat from the WTTW Kids series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood for “Be My Neighbor Day!”

September 10, 2022 | 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.| Water Street Mall,
13 Water St, Aurora, IL 60505

Get to know your neighbors while enjoying live music from local children’s artist Jim Gill, preschool engagement programming from WTTW Kids Learn & Play, and the 100th anniversary celebration of Fox Valley United Way. Visit with over 15 local agencies, enter a grand prize raffle, and make a difference in your community by donating food or diapers to help local food pantries.

When it debuted on PBS KIDS in 2012, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, the first original show from Fred Rogers Productions since Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, brought the children’s television pioneer’s legacy to life for a whole new generation of young viewers. Every episode of the well-loved series showcases two distinct stories starring 4-year-old Daniel Tiger and his friends, who invite viewers to join them as they explore the colorful Neighborhood of Make-Believe.
