Smiley has just passed a major milestone: he celebrated his 25th birthday this Saturday at the Carnegie Science Center! Smiley had been anticipating his big party for months, and it was worth the wait.
To celebrate, the first floor of the Science Center was decorated with balloons, streamers, banners and party hats. Not only were Smiley’s adoring fans there, but so were his mascot friends! The Pirate Parrot, Pitt Panther, Kenny the Kangaroo and the Nittany Lion were just a few of Smiley’s friends who made an appearance.
In addition, plenty of families and kids came out to celebrate Smiley’s big day! Everyone enjoyed cookie decorating, smoothies and, of course, birthday cake. Lead by Pittsburgh's own Sarah Marince, partygoers even sang "Happy Birthday" to Smiley.
The party turned out to be even better than Smiley could have ever imagined! He wishes to thank everyone for coming out and sharing this special day with him. He can't wait to celebrate another 25 years!
