Join us as we transform Pullen Park into Letterland on Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. Letterland at Pullen Park is free admission into the park and $1.00 for rides. Children from Wake County and surrounding areas are invited to participate in an exciting Letterland Adventure Day. 

 Download the event schedule and a map of the park here. 

While in Letterland, children will met Firefighter Fred and explore a fire engine. They will meet the Queen of Letterland, get to ride on Clever Cat's Carousel and drive in one of Bouncy Ben's boats! Also, they can travel with Letterlanders on Talking Tess' train, and join Kicking King in Munching Mike's Bean Bag Toss and much more.

 is a unique, phonics-based approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling to 3-8 year olds. The Letterland characters transform plain black letter shapes into child-friendly pictograms and they all live in an imaginary place called Letterland.
