Party in the Park with Pete the Cat!

Tuesday, May 1, 2018 - 3:30pm
Phelps Park

Dragonfly Books is thrilled to celebrate Children’s Book Week and Screen-Free Week with Winneshiek County Conservation! On Tuesday, May 1 at 3:30 pm, children of all ages and families are invited to Phelps Park for stories with Dragonfly Books, outdoor activities with Lilly Jensen from Winneshiek County Conservation, and a special guest -- Pete the Cat!

Children will have the opportunity to meet Pete the Cat, go on a scavenger hunt, make a nature mask, and other fun outdoor activities.

Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes -- wherever young readers and books connect.

Presented by Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, Screen-Free Week is an annual, international celebration when families, schools, and communities swap digital entertainment for the joys of life beyond the screen. Instead of watching TV, surfing the web, or playing with apps and video games, children -- and adults -- read, play, think, create, get active, and spend more time with family and friends.

Dragonfly Books and Winneshiek County Conservation are excited to offer this opportunity for stories, play, outdoor adventure, and the unique experience of meeting Pete the Cat in person.

This event is sponsored by Dragonfly Books and Winneshiek County Conservation. It will take place at Phelps Park in Decorah and is free and open to the public. In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved to Dragonfly Books, 112 W. Water St., Decorah.
