PBS Kids Get Up and Go! Day

Friday, Aug. 7
Get Up and Go! Day highlights ways Wisconsin families can be active, enjoy the outdoors, and be healthy!

We hope to see you at Wisconsin Public Television’s PBS Kids Get Up and Go! Day, 10 a.m. to noon Friday, Aug. 7! This fun-filled, free event encourages children to live healthy and active lives.

With locations across the state, the family-friendly events will feature music, dancing, favorite PBS Kids characters, hands-on activities and crafts, community organizations and more. Families, day care groups and other childcare organizations are welcome to attend.

Get involved! Share your pictures of how your family celebrates the Get Up and Go! spirit all year long on Facebook or on Twitter using #WPTGetUpandGo. Visit WPT's YouTube channel to watch archived video from Get Up and Go! Day 2014. Get Up and Go! Day will also be broadcast live on WPT.
