From May 2-5, 2002, Philips Arena hosted Dragon Tales Live family show. This educational spectacle geared towards toddlers reinforced the themes of friendship and fun that are often featured in the PBS Kids Show. Dragon Tales is an animated television series set in a fantasy land of dragons. The energetic personalities of Max, Emmy, and their bilingual friend Enrique, have enhanced the show’s following. Teachers and parents alike rave about the positive message this program portrays and the important underlying themes of collaboration, imagination, and open-mindedness.
