TAMPA, FL – May 12, 2014 – To coincide with National Foster Care Month, more than 20 Tampa Bay area foster children will be celebrated on Wednesday, May 14, at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Performers from Disney On Ice presents Let’s Celebrate!, working in conjunction with The Children’s Home, Inc., will encourage, entertain and spread joy to these children who may be dealing with stressful and challenging home situations.
The children will arrive at 10 a.m. and will have the chance to interact with show performers and participate in various activities, including a creative craft and animated dancing. The youth will first learn about the countries Mickey Mouse travels to in Disney On Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! with a fun and interactive geography lesson. They will then decorate their very own Caribbean-themed mask as part of the lively Brazilian Carnival celebration in the show. The morning also includes a spunky and energetic dance lesson from show performers where kids will learn dance moves similar to some of their favorite characters from the ice show. **Media will have the chance to capture great visuals as the children enjoy this celebration recognizing them.
The exciting event will conclude with a meet and greet with characters from Disney On Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! and each child will receive tickets to the show. This event promises to be an uplifting time filled with smiles and laughs that will offer a reprieve to these very deserving children.
