  • WIPB TV's Be My Neighbor Day 1pm to 4pm @ Canan Commons Downtown Muncie 500 S. Walnut St

    Meet Daniel Tiger, star of the PBS KIDS' animated series "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood."

    Use a “neighborhood map” to visit the booths where our community’s great neighbors “live.” Participate in fun activities while learning about ways to give back -through volunteering, supporting the arts and helping those in need.

    Snap a selfie with some of your other favorite PBS KIDS characters like SuperWhy and Buddy the Dinosaur, who will be hanging out in the neighborhood, or be the “I” in  the “One Muncie” sign.

    Visit with members of our local police and fire departments and their cool vehicles.

    Listen – and dance, of course  - to our featured performer Ruditoonz, a fun, creative musician the kids (and parents) are going to love. The Muncie Symphony’s Together In  Music program will also perform a selection of great, toddler-friendly tunes.

    And, above all, enjoy a beautiful day in the neighborhood with YOUR neighbors!
