Miss Rosa arrived in Madison early to read her favorite story to an excited bunch of Wisconsin PBS Kids Thursday. She’ll be at the Keshena Get Up and Go! Day event Friday.

“Get Up and Go!” Day is an annual tradition that continues to get bigger and better every year, and 2013 is no exception. This year, we’re expanding to five locations throughout Wisconsin and will broadcast the event live on WPT.

Join us from 10 a.m. – noon Friday, Aug. 2 at one of the locations listed below!

Kicking off the event this year will be a special video message from First Lady Michelle Obama, who will welcome children and their caregivers watching on the statewide network and encourage them to pursue a healthy, active lifestyle as they sing, dance, jump and play along with all of the event’s activities on air.

We’ll be all across the state this Friday and welcome kids and families to “Get Up and Go!” with us at one of several locations. The free family events will feature kid-friendly activities, songs, stories and visits from favorite PBS Kids characters including Mr. Steve and Miss Rosa. Look below for locations and details.

Also, be sure to share pictures of your family taking part in the “Get Up and Go!” spirit on Facebook or on Twitter using the hashtag #WPTGetUpandGo.
