This episode kicks off with a delightful exploration of Fun Across America’s latest video, featuring Minnesota’s largest candy store—an enchanting place bursting with sweets and organic charm. We also spotlight the inspiring Heartstrings pop-up program in Chicago, a joint initiative by UNICEF USA and Moment Factory. This interactive, multisensory exhibit educates families on global children’s issues, highlighting healthcare, education, protection, and respect, making the world a better place one experience at a time.

Next, we saddle up and dive into the captivating sport of hobby horsing, which is more than just child’s play. Find out how this unique blend of dance, gymnastics, and equestrian movements is winning hearts in Europe and now galloping across the US. We feature a passionate young competitor from Wisconsin and share a thrilling video that showcases the creativity and athleticism behind this burgeoning phenomenon. This segment is all about embracing your passions and silencing the naysayers who might not understand.

From niche hobbies to grand dreams, we wrap up with an exciting look at theme park preview centers, shining a spotlight on the newly unveiled Epic Universe at CityWalk in Orlando. Discover how augmented reality is transforming the model viewing experience and the clever release of themed merchandise ahead of the park’s grand opening in 2025. As the weekend approaches, we leave you with a burst of motivation—whether you’re planning to recharge or forge ahead with your goals, keep the momentum going.
