Boo and I spent many an hour watching Treehouse TV when he was younger. And just as many hours listening to The Wiggles and Splash 'n Boots CDs. (I may even have been guilty of listening to those when he wasn't around ...) He's grown a little older, and is perhaps moved out of the Treehouse stage, but I know many of you have little ones in your lives that will appreciate this event, coming to Toronto on September 13 and 14.
The first annual Treehouse Big Day Out is a two-day festival presented by Sunwing.ca, and starring the top names in family entertainment. Hosted by Treehouse, Canada's #1 specialty channel for preschoolers, the event is jam-packed with exciting activities for kids of all ages and will be headlined by The Wiggles – the number one children's entertainment group – and will showcase performances by fan favourites Max & Ruby and award-winning Canadian children's music duo, Splash'N Boots.
Taking place at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto, Treehouse Big Day Out will offer two separate ticketed events each day – a morning show from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and an afternoon show from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. This special event also will be televised on Treehouse on Saturday, October 4, at 5:00 p.m. ET.
"We are thrilled to be hosting the first-ever Treehouse Big Day Out festival and to offer kids and families an incredible weekend filled with fantastic fun," said Colin Bohm, Vice President, Television, and Head of Corus Kids. "With special concerts from The Wiggles, on-stage 'play-dates' with Max & Ruby and performances by Splash'N Boots, plus tons of hands-on activities for the whole family to explore and enjoy together, Treehouse Big Day Out is sure to be a huge hit with kids and families alike!"
