ValleyPBS and Fresno Chaffee Zoo are excited to announce an exciting, new event – ValleyPBS Kids Nite! Formerly known as Dino Nite, this new event will take place on Saturday, September 5 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Families who’ve previously attended Dino Nite met Buddy from Dinosaur Train, created dinosaur related crafts, visited booths, and watched a Dinosaur Train special episode under the stars. This event drew great crowds for the last four years, however, ValleyPBS and Chaffee Zoo wanted to offer more kids a chance to meet their favorite PBS Kids characters and expand the event beyond Dinosaur Train.

World, Alpha Pig from Super Why!, Curious George and Daniel Tiger! Families will have the opportunity to meet each character and take photos. Photos can be taken with family cameras/phones and will also be taken by event photographers viewable (free) on ValleyPBS’s website after the event.
