ST. PETERSBURG – No need to trek all the way to the Emerald City for adventure: Pinellas residents are invited to visit Tyrone Square Mall for a special experience as Simon Malls celebrate the 75th anniversary of “The Wizard of Oz.”
Simon Property Group Inc. and Simon Kidgits Club will host the 75th anniversary event on Saturday, Sept. 21, 1 to 3 p.m., in Sears Court at Tyrone Square Mall, 6901 22nd Ave. N.
At the celebration, families can participate in a variety of imaginative “The Wizard of Oz” inspired activities to revel in the charming tradition of the “Yellow Brick Road.” Children who attend will receive a map, which leads to various stations that feature viewings of “The Wizard of Oz” film clips, craft-making and coloring activities, cutout character photo opportunities and exclusive movie-focused giveaways.
"Families across the country come to Simon Malls to do more than just shop," said Pamela Kluge-Rada in a press release. Kluge-Rada is Tyrone Square Mall’s director of marketing. "Because Simon properties are places where the community gathers, we're encouraging adults and kids to come out, connect with each other and get immersed in a classic, fascinating film that people of all ages have enjoyed for years."
The Simon Kidgits Club is a fun and informative program that focuses on health, wellness, education, safety and entertainment for children ages 3 to 8.
Since 2003, the Simon Kidgits Club has kept children and parents alike amused with various events and activities while providing incentives for club members, such as special offers, rewards and games.
