Calling all kids and grown ups that are young at heart! Chessie Jam is coming to Pier Six in Baltimore! On Saturday October 4, the children’s music festival, Chessie Jam, will be hosting kid friendly music and fun activities. There will be free face painting from 12:00-2:00pm, an instrument petting zoo, a photo-booth, a moon-bounce, tie-dying, a storybook village, and much more! These fun things are paired with even more fun music. The featured bands include the winners of “Best Musical Album for Children,” Milkshake, and even Yo Gabba Gabba’s Biz Markie!
Join WLOY and participate in a live recording of our award winning program, “What Happens Next?” Running since 2009, this children’s program has helped promote better reading, writing, and communication skills as well as help expand imaginations. We provide the beginning of the story, but our participates figure out “what happens next!” WLOY will be promoting this program as well as working with kids to write and record their stories at Chessie Jam! Come out and enjoy some music and fun this Saturday!
