BOSTON — On July 14 at the WGBH Brighton Studio, more that 3,000 parents and children came out for the annual WGBH FunFest. Each year the station offers a day of ice cream, music and a chance for families to visit our studios and meet favorite PBS characters. 

Kids got hugs from Clifford the Big Red Dog, Arthur, Curious George, Quack, Ruff Ruffman, Wally and WordGirl. There was plenty of music to sing and dance with, thanks to Mr. Steve, Flooky and the Beans, Toe Jam Puppet Band, the Harney Academy of Irish Step Dancers and many more.
