Celebrating Children's Day at COSI
In celebration of all children, Franklin County Children Services hosted its annual Children’s Day celebration at COSI, from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28. Children and families under agency care received passes for free admission, thanks to donations from Kroger and a partnership between COSI and the Franklin County Board of Commissioners. About 1,800 people munched on free snacks and danced to music provided by Bob Piascik Sing Along, Arnett Howard and Supa Fun Band during the evening.
Many of the children attending included foster children and others under the care of Children Services, who typically would not have the opportunity to visit COSI. They explored COSI’s hands-on educational exhibits, and enjoyed visits by local mascots and family-learning time.
