NORWALK, Conn. -- Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk pulled out all the stops Wednesday as it celebrated its 15th birthday in style.
The all-day festivities included a "Make a Cake and Party Hats" activity for kids of all ages. BooZoo made a special appearance at all the usual Wednesday programs, including Toddler Tales, Looking Up, Music Time and Zumba Kids.
Anna Zap from the Star 99.9-FM morning show was on stage next to the museum’s iconic “Color Coaster” for a live broadcast.
Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling dropped by to join in the celebration. He helped to give out cupcakes for all, including gluten-free and vegan options.
In the afternoon, an original “Birthday Skit” was performed by Team Stepping Stones. Then, BooZoo joined the crowd to sing Happy Birthday. A custom-made 15th birthday piñata was lowered from the heights of the multi-media gallery. Kids enjoyed all the non-edible treats inside, then danced to on-screen fireworks, and followed that by signing a gigantic happy birthday card.
