Día del Niño a hit in the community

Anytime I get done a major work event a sigh of relief sort of hits me. Last Saturday, April 14 I successfully executed my first (full) Día del Niño event at the Please Touch Museum. This year I took a chance and contracted different entertainment and added some new elements. I always think that you can plan as much as possible, but it's not until the day of when you really start working.

With over 3,500 attendees, children, parents and families enjoyed a variety of kid-friendly activities and museum exhibitions throughout the day. The City of Philadelphia recognized the event with a citation which honored Telemundo Philadelphia and the Please Touch Museum for their commitment to serving the Latino community in the Delaware Valley. The citation was presented by Maria Quiñonez-Sanchez, City Councilwoman.

Some of the favorite activities included the Philadelphia Eagles' cheerleaders along with their mascot Swoop, a step workshop by Art of Stepping and more. There were numerous giveaways including Please Touch Museum passes, tickets to the Explosion Salsera concert in Atlantic City, NJ as well as a bunkbed. It was great seeing so many kids (and parents) with a smile on their face. Here's to many more DDNs!
