One of my most excellent childhood memories is when my mom took my brother and me to see Mr. Rogers. Live. And in person. Fred! Freaking! Rogers!
You too can be a hero. Just bring your little trainiacs to the Choo Choo Bob Show at the Riverview Theatre June 1. Chances are they’re big fans of the show (Sat. mornings at 9 am on Channel 45). And they’ll get the chance to meet Choo Choo Bob and all his friends (yes, pictures, autographs—the works). They’ll also get to see screenings of a few shows plus a sneak peek of new episode, “Riders of the Lost Train.”
Tickets are just $5. But if you go right now to the Lollipopolis Facebook Page and give the Choo Choo Bob’s post a big ol’ “thumbs up,” ya know what I’ll do? I’ll put your name in a hat (okay, maybe not a hat) and I’ll pick two random winners sometime next week. And those lucky random winners will each win the following: 4 tickets to the Choo Choo Bob Show at the Riverview; 1 Choo Choo Charlie DVD; 1 Balloons over Tinyland DVD; AND, the book, Holy Smokestacks Here Comes a Steam Engine!
And if you still don’t have your Choo Choo Bob fill after that, go see the gang in the Grand Old Day parade Sunday, June 2 with a performance at 12:30 on the Family Stage (Ramsey Jr. High Grass Area).
And if you still don’t have your Choo Choo fill after that. You might want to seek help. There may be a problem.
