Glendale will celebrate Teddy Bear Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 8.

In honor of the enduring toy named for President Theodore Roosevelt, Teddy Bear Day will feature Glendale’s own Al the Bear, who will be available for pictures. Teddy Bear Day also will include make-and-take arts and crafts, special treats and exclusive deals in Historic Downtown Glendale.

Visitors will have a chance to participate in activities such as creating a chocolate bear at Cerreta’s, a bear-coloring contest at Papa Ed’s, make-and-take teddy bear bracelets at Pink House and decorating teddy bear cookies at Shelley’s Specialty Desserts.

In addition, the Arizona Search Dogs will search for hidden teddy bears as part of their demonstration at Bears and More.

Attendees are encouraged to start their day at the Glendale Visitor Center, 5800 W. Glenn Drive, Suite 140, where they can pick up a map of participating merchants, coupons and a gift bag for the first 300 who arrive.

At the Visitor Center, participants can also take a spin on the prize wheel, and can contribute a new or gently hugged teddy bear.

Donated bears will be provided to the Glendale Fire Department Trauma Teddy Program, the Glendale Crisis Response Team and United Way to comfort young children who have been affected by a traumatic event.

In past years, nearly 500 teddy bears have been collected at the one-day event.
