The Borough of Avalon will be getting some nationwide television coverage on Friday, November 26th on the PBS Sprout network. Avalon will be featured on the “Sunny Side Up” morning show program between 9:00am-Noon. PBS Sprout came to Avalon this summer to shoot a piece with the Avalon Beach Patrol called “Chica’s Day at the Beach”; the segment promotes beach safety and education. The video production was conducted on Friday, July 30th, at Avalon’s 58th Street beach, and also at Avalon’s Bay Park Marina.
The video segment includes various actors from “Sprout” along with popular children’s character “Chica”, a small chicken. Chica and the “Sprout” characters spent the day interacting with members of the Avalon Beach Patrol to educate children on the various duties conducted by lifeguards along with safety tips for a fun day at the beach.
