JOHNSTON, IOWA (August 30, 2022) — Be among the first to watch PBS KIDS' new program, Rosie's Rules, at our PJ Party! On September 30, 6PM, at the Maytag Auditorium, Iowa PBS will host a pajama party themed premiere event with fun for the whole family.

This new series follows Rosie Fuentes, an inquisitive and hilarious five-year-old girl just starting to learn about the "wow-mazing" world beyond her family walls. She is ready to learn it all. . . by figuring it out herself!

Families are encouraged to attend wearing pajamas and slippers. A "bedtime" snack of milk and cookies will be served. An activity perfect for all ages will follow the screening.
