TPT is the Twin Cities Public Television station. Besides family programming, they bring family events to the Twin Cities throughout the year. Watch for live versions of your favorite kids' shows and fun public gatherings. One of our favorites is Family Fun Day at Como Park. Each may, families can purchase discounted ride tickets for Como Town through TPT or just come to Como Zoo for free activities.
If you visit the station, you'll want to set aside time to visit the Depot Tot Lot, a train themed park that shares a block with the TV station.
TPT at the State Fair
