Shortly before it started raining on Sunday night, Nippertown’s latest super fuzzy mascot made his (or her?) official debut at the Music Haven in Schenectady’s Central Park.
Round, bright orange and oh-so-shaggy, the Smile Monster danced out into the crowd for a few moments just prior to the children’s music concert by Ruth “Miss Music Mobile” Pelham and Ramblin Jug Stompers.
Monster then promptly left the park, leaving a non-fuzzy spokesperson to explain that a website would go live today to provide more smiles. Sure enough, somewhere around 2pm, the website appeared. And at least from what we can figure out, the Smile Monster is apparently the mascot for Charles Street Studio, which operates iSmile Studios at Colonie Center.
