Children's Festival of Reading TOMORROW
So, I was hoping to post this several days ago to give you more of a heads up, but life happened and it hasn't gotten done until right now.
Knox County Public Library's yearly Children't Festival of Reading is tomorrow, Saturday, May 17th from 10am-3pm at the World's Fair Park (with Splash Pad). This 10th anniversary event and parking are totally FREE.
Among famous authors, illustrators, and musician, there will be hourly shows by Mr. Bond, The Science Guy. There will also be a booth where you can sign up for the library's summer reading program and other booths with arts and crafts.
And with any MOPS blog, we must talk about food- there will be various food vendors and food trucks to purchase fair-like fried goodies.
I don't want to make any promises, but last year, Curious George was there walking around to take pictures and give out treats AND there were FREE rides up the Sunsphere to the observation deck.

Hope to see you there!
In full disclosure, The Weather Channel says that there is 40% chance of rain tomorrow. HOWEVER, we went last year when it was raining on and off, and we had a great time and didn't need to spend a penny.
