Barney coming to St. Petersburg on Saturday!
Yes, the purple one himself will be at Tyrone Square Mall from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday to host Barney's Sprouterrific Playdate. But there's another reason than just to meet Barney, who has been around for more than 20 years: Sprout, the 24-hour TV channel geared to tots ages 2-5, is searching for the first preschool weather reporter who will make his or her debut on the network's Sunny Side Up Show.
Joining Barney at the playdate will be Kevin from Sunny Side Up and his Emmy-nominated sidekick Chica the Chicken. Kids will have their picture taken with Barney, Chica and Kevin and also get the chance to step into Sprout’s Sunshine Barn and give a fun weather report.
All families will receive a backstage pass to SproutPlease.com where they can download their pictures and special weather reporter video. One lucky winner will be chosen from one of the seven cities on the playdate tour to appear in a pre-recorded segment on Sprout as a guest weather reporter. Tyrone Square is at 6901 22nd Ave. N, Sears Court.
Best part about this, it's free! Now everyone, together: "I love you, you love me ..."
