Smiles, Sea Lions, and Dancing… Oh My!

What’s up, everyone! Maria here with another update on what Smiley has been up to this past weekend!

Smiley was super excited to be part of the grand opening of Latrobe Eat’n Park’s brand-new Pickup Window! He had the opportunity to serve their very first customer, retired Eat’n Park CEO Jim Broadhurst and his wife Suzy, and leaped for joy at the successful day. 

On Saturday, Smiley hung out at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium to pass along Smiles and Smiley Cookies to everyone there and hang out with all the animals. He had a blast seeing his favorite animal, Smiley the Sea Lion, and taking pictures with all the guests. 

And finally, on Sunday Smiley visited the Bethel Park Eat’nPark location on Library Road and had an absolute blast! He met Ed the baker, who has worked at Eat’n Park for over 25 years, and showed off some pretty cool moves to all the guests.  

Overall, Smiley would say that this weekend was a success and is already anticipating fun in the weeks to come!

Smiley Visits Peters Township & The Science Center

Hi friends, Abby here to catch you up on Smiley’s fun filled weekend!

We kicked off our fun at the Peters Township Community day! Smiley had so much fun seeing all his friends smiling and having a good time cookie decorating with the crew. He loved seeing all the booths and sharing smiles with the volunteers, vendors, and the crowd! 

Our next stop was at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh. Smiley and the gang had cookie decorating available to everyone in the museum that day! We were right next to the GUITAR “The instrument that rocked the world” exhibit that Eat n’ Park sponsored. Smiley had a blast running around all the exhibits. He even got to see his face on the side of a train in the railroad room! 

After our fun weekend out and about we got to give back to our amazing staff with our company Kennywood Day! Team members from all over traveled with their families to join in on all the festivities. We had games, face painting, and of course cookie decorating! Smiley had a blast dancing and taking pictures with everyone. Smiley and his team wanted to thank everyone for their hard work and we were very happy to see you enjoying your day off with us! 

That’s all for now and we can’t wait to see you all summer at our other events! Make sure to check out Find Smiley to see where we're going so we can make you smile too!
