WPSU Kid’s Day at DelGrosso’s brings ‘monkey business’ to Tipton

On Saturday, June 23, DelGrosso\’s Amusement Park will be all monkey business when the lovable and mischievous monkey, Curious George, swings by to visit the park.
DelGrosso\’s Amusement Park, celebrating their 60th anniversary in Tipton, will host WPSU Kids\’ Day, a fun-filled extravaganza for families. The monkeying around will begin at 11 a.m., when families can enjoy free parking and admission and have the chance to make their very own Curious George hand puppet at the WPSU tent. Children are invited to meet Curious George during the day. Parents should feel free to bring cameras.
WPSU members can find four coupons for $3 off of the cost of an all-day pass to DelGrosso\’s Amusement Park in their June program guide that can be used on June 23.
Each summer, WPSU-TV and DelGrosso\’s Amusement Park partner to create a fantastic day of family fun for the community. An ideal summertime activity, the park includes activities for children, more than 30 amusement park rides, an extensive water park, go-karts, a beautiful miniature golf course and delicious amusement park food.
WPSU serves central Pennsylvania with programming, educational services and community outreach. The public broadcasting station is committed to providing educational and entertaining community outreach events for all of the station\’s 29-county viewing area.

Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains of central Pennsylvania, DelGrosso\’s Amusement Park has been providing fun, food and memories for six decades. When Fred DelGrosso purchased the Park in 1946, he vowed to keep it safe, clean, fun, affordable and delicious. As the popularity of DelGrosso\’s spaghetti sauce grew, so did the park.
