Meet Daniel Tiger at WIPB’s Be My Neighbor Day!

Won’t You Be Our Neighbor?

Join WIPB at the third annual Be My Neighbor Day on Saturday, Sept. 16, at Canan Commons in downtown Muncie. The free family event, set for 1 to 4 p.m., will include an appearance by none other than DANIEL TIGER, star of DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD.

New this year, you’ll also meet KATERINA KITTYCAT and SPLASH & BUBBLES! Hop on the MITS Neighborhood Trolley and enjoy performances by musicians and more. Rock out to the ukelele awesomeness of THE ATOMIC SHARKS from 2-3 p.m. Other performers include MUNCIE CIVIC THEATRE and THE SHAMANIACS!

At the heart of this event is the importance of being neighborly. So why not  learn about some of our community’s greatest neighbors?

A map will lead children through the streets of a very special neighborhood, where they will meet people from community centers, arts organizations, charity groups and much more. At each booth, kids will be able to participate in fun activities, many designed to show the importance of being a good neighbor. Parents and caregivers will discover ways to give back, from volunteer opportunities to supporting local arts and culture. Once the maps are completed, kids will be able to claim their Good Neighbor awards!

BE MY NEIGHBOR DAY is presented by PrimeTrust Federal Credit Union and Art Van Furniture of Muncie.

Additional support provided by: The Community Foundation of Muncie and Delaware County, Inc., Community Hospital Anderson, Dennis, Wenger & Abrell, Professional Corporation, Hudson Printing and Mailing Services, Muncie Optimist Club, Muncie Sanitary District and Leland C Wilhoite, DDS.

So, see you soon, neighbors!
