Children's Day at COSI
In honor of all children, Franklin County Children Services is hosting its annual Children's Day celebration at COSI, on Friday, September 26, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at COSI, 333 West Broad Street. Children and families under agency care will receive passes for free admission thanks to corporate donations from Kroger and others. FCCS is able to offer this event to children, some who may not typically have the opportunity to visit COSI, because of a partnership between COSI and the Franklin County Board of Commissioners. FCCS's Children's Day at COSI is also open to the public for a discounted admission rate of $10.95. Parking is $5.
All children attending can enjoy wonderful prizes offered in drawings (including bicycles donated by Bike Lady Inc.), exciting stage performances from Shazzbots Duo, Arnett Howard, Bob Piascik Sing-Along, Mackee Magic Show, and visits by some of Central Ohio's favorite local mascots. COSI's hands-on educational exhibits and a movie in COSI's National Geographic Screen Theater will be available free of charge. Click here for more information.
