It’s our 40th anniversary and we’ve invited some special friends to help us celebrate. Two of our favorite PBS KIDS friends - Daniel Tiger and Katerina Kittycat – are coming to Discovery Center. Meet and take photos with Daniel and Katerina by the trolley. Friends from the Rockford Police and Fire Departments will also join us. See inside a real fire truck and police car and learn about the great things firefighters and police officers do to be “helpers” in our community. We’ll be collecting boxed breakfast foods to give to our neighbors at the Rock River Food Pantry. Please arrive during your reservation window. Be My Neighbor Day is supported by PNC Grow Up Great and WTTW.

Register for an arrival time on our website. Arrival times are 9:30am, 10:30 am, 11:30 am, 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm and 2:30 pm.  Please arrive during your 1 hour arrival window.
