Team Smiley Has an Extraordinary Time at the Extravaganza

Hi, Eat’n Park enthusiasts! This is your favorite Smiley Cookie writing to you. This past weekend, my crew and I were very, very busy! After visiting Penn State University on Friday and Pittsburgh’s Children’s Museum on Saturday, we spent Sunday afternoon at the Carnegie Library for their Summer Reading Extravaganza.

It was a beautiful sunny day, perfect weather for an outdoor event. We were positioned underneath the shade of a canopy of trees, surrounded by many other booths with fun offerings like face painting, puppet shows, and treats. My team and I brought plenty of our own favorite treat, Smiley Cookies!

Our decorating stations were very popular, and so many of my friends iced their very own cookie. Even Kenny the Kangaroo, who lives at Kennywood, tried his hand at decorating.

Most importantly, as the name states, the Reading Extravaganza promotes the continuation of learning and reading throughout the summer season. Just because school ends, doesn’t mean discovering new things should! The Carnegie library’s mascot was also there helping kids sign up for their first library card. I was so happy to join in the reading fun!
