#LatinaBloggers Spending a #BooFestPBS Halloween with Curious George

Latina Bloggers Connect is part of a very fun campaign with everyone's favorite monkey: Curious George!

Halloween is almost here and George can't wait for the festivities to begin: carving pumpkins, costume contests, and especially the Annual Boo Festival. Forty #LatinaBloggers were selected to be a part of this Connection and share their thoughts on the exciting and first-time-ever Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest movie that debuts on PBS KIDS on October 28th.

Who doesn't love to dance? It's a great form of self-expression and exercise. What kind of music do you love to dance to? Do your kids love to swirl, jump and get their groove on when they hear music?

Our favorite monkey Curious George is still celebrating the arts and wants you to join in on the fun. This time, we are asked to put a little pep in our step and celebrate the art of dance. In fact, there's an awesome Dance Contest happening right now! If your little one loves to dance, grab your video camera and enter for a chance to be featured in a Curious George DVD. Details HERE.
