Letterland brings letters to life by turning them into colorful characters, each with their own personality and stories that go along with their sounds. Wake County elementary schools and many preschool programs use the phonics program as part of their literacy instruction.
Approximately 15,000 are expected at the event. Children will be welcomed by Firefighter Fred and a real fire engine. They’ll meet Annie Apple, Bouncy Ben and Clever Cat. Children can ride on Clever Cat’s carousel and drive in one of Bouncy Ben’s boats. They can travel with Letterlanders on Talking Tess’s train, have their face painted with Impy Ink and make noise with Noisy Nick.
Children can play a game of Munching Mike’s Bean Bag Toss, make Kicking King or Quarrelsome Queen crowns, join the Letterland parade, and enjoy school group performances on the large stage. Plus, be on the lookout for new and exciting activities for this year’s event. Pullen Place Café will offer Munching Mike’s Menu for delicious food and options.
