Get ready for the annual Second Saturdays winter carnival at TPT! This year, the carnival is bigger and better than ever. We’ll have an obstacle course bounce house. We’ll have face painting. Carnival games? You bet! Try Big Bird’s Bowl-o-rama, Super Grover’s Soda Toss, Oscar the Grouch’s Garbage Can Knockdown and more. Plus popcorn, sno-cones, hot chocolate and coffee (for the parents).

The SciGirls will also be there making biodegradable icicle bird-feeders that you can use to see what winter birds live in your neighborhood!

Our charity partner this month is Open Arms of Minnesota! We’ll be hosing a whole grain cereal drive to ensure community members living with illness have healthy food to eat. Please consider bringing a 15-18 oz box of cereal within these nutritional guidelines: whole grain as first ingredient, fewer than 6 grams of sugar, at least 3 grams of fiber and fewer than 150 mg sodium per serving. Good examples are Cheerios, Chex, Bran or Corn Flakes, Shredded Wheat, Rice Krispies, or Total.

What to expect:

  • Lower volumes, lighting, and crowds
  • A variety of adaptable activities

Some things to note:

  • Please register kids and adults separately.
  • Kids of all ages are welcome, and we encourage siblings to attend, too!
  • Capacity for this event is limited to make your experience more comfortable.
  • Wheelchair accessible
  • Parking: The Lowertown Ramp (Connected to TPT) is accessible from Jackson Street, and Sibley Street. Take the elevator up to level K to enter the studio.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this sensory-friendly event, please reach out to us at [email protected].

We hope to see you there!
