New Themed Birthday Parties
at the South Street Seaport Museum

“Little Tug” and “Pout-Pout Fish”

The South Street Seaport Museum is excited to announce new themed Birthday Parties based on two of Macmillan Publishing’s most beloved children’s books characters. The South Street Seaport Museum is located at 12 Fulton Street, NY, NY 10038 and for more information and to register please visit: https://southstreetseaportmuseum.org/education/birthday-parties/.

Little Tug Birthday Party (for children ages 1-3) – With activities inspired by Stephen Savage’s critically acclaimed picture book Little Tug, this fun-filled birthday party features five interactive stations for children and their caregivers to enjoy. Meet live sea critters from the East River, play sink or float at our water table, color in your own Little Tug and hear the story of Little Tug who helps in a big way.

Pout-Pout Fish Birthday Party (for children ages 4-5) – Discover some of the sea creatures who live in New York Harbor at a Pout-Pout Fish themed birthday party, inspired by the New York Times bestselling book by Deborah Diesen and Dan Hanna. This underwater-friends party features the chance to hold some of East River sea life, a story-telling of a small town fish and her dreams to make it in the big city followed by a fun and active game, plus the opportunity to create a group Pout-Pout Fish birthday banner for the guest of honor.

Little Tug and books in The Pout-Pout Fish series are available for purchase as giveaways for parties at a special discounted price.

Float Your Boat (for children 4-5) – Ahoy sailors! This boat themed party features the chance for kids to build their own boats, play sink or float, race sailboats at our water tables, a puppet show telling the story of a small tug boat who wanted to race up the Hudson River, and play a nautical navigation game where participants must find safe harbor.
