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.


For more information about Teddy Bear Day and other upcoming events, log on to VisitGlendale.com, Facebook.com/GlendaleCVB, Twitter.com/GlendaleCVB or call the Glendale Convention & Visitors Bureau at 623-930-4500.
