Weekend Watch, Part 2: National Book Festival in DC

Filed Under:

DC BABY reader and local mama Stephanie reminded me that I should mention the National Book Festival taking place on the Mall in DC this weekend.

Stephanie writes, "It's a favorite with my little one. She gets her picture taken with an array of her favorite characters."

The festival takes place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is hosted by the Library of Congress, and is free and open to the public. For a map and a schedule of events, click here.

At the "Let's Read" Pavilion, you'll find most of the child-friendly activities, including characters from the PBS Kids shows:

Anne of Green Gables
The Berenstein Bears
Digit from "Cyberchase"
Ord from "Dragon Tales"
Clifford the Big Red Dog
Curious George
Elmo from "Sesame Street"
Leona from "Between the Lions"
Maya & Miguel
Piggley Winks from "Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks"
Snook from "It's a Big Big World"
Mr. McFeely the Speedy Delivery Man from "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood"
& the host of the new PBS KIDS preschool block, "Miss Lori"
