BEAR DAY CELEBRATES 10 YEARS IN
DOWNTOWN GLENDALE SEPTEMBER 6
GLENDALE, Ariz. – Teddy bears make the world a happier
place. That’s why downtown merchants and the Glendale
Convention & Visitors Bureau are teaming up to hold the
10th annual Teddy Bear Day on Sept. 6, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. in
Historic Downtown Glendale.
One of the most important components to Teddy Bear Day
will be a donation drive to support the Glendale Fire
Department’s Teddy Trauma Program, which collects bears to
comfort young children affected by traumatic events. Bears
will be on sale for $8, will be donated on site and all
proceeds of the sales will also go to the program. The Fire
Department–approved bears will be available at three
locations, the Visitor Center, Bears & More and the
Country Maiden (see addresses listed below.)
Teddy Bear Day activities will include make-and-take
arts and crafts, special treats and exclusive deals in
Historic Downtown Glendale. Attendees are encouraged to
start their day at the Glendale Visitor Center, 5800 W.
Glenn Drive, Suite 140, where they can pick up a map of
participating merchants, coupons and a savings pack for the
first 250 families. Visitors will also be greeted by
Al the Bear and can enter the Name the Bear contest to win
– what else? A teddy bear!
Another highlight of Teddy Bear Day will be the Grand
Opening Celebration of the Arizona Doll & Toy Museum at
their new location in downtown Glendale. Admission will be
free for children, and the celebration will include cake and
punch, plus a display of antique teddy bears.
