Rootle Wonderland at the NC State Fair

At the NC State Fair each year and elsewhere across North Carolina, Rootle, UNC-TV's PBS Kids Channel, host family-friendly block parties that feature some of its most popular characters.

Those in-person gatherings can't happen right now with the COVID-19 pandemic, so Rootle is going virtual and bringing its popular event from "the block to the box," as a press release says.

The program will be 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 19, on Rootle.

Guests and partners for the show include:

The hour will include sing-alongs, educational games and more.
