The kids fun fest was full of educational and entertaining activities for kids and their families to enjoy. Planting flowers, face painting, bouncy houses and a petting zoo were just a few highlights.
Local fire departments were there with their firetrucks and ambulances.
One firefighter talked about how much fun the kids have checking them out.
"We're out here with our ambulance just letting kids look through it. Get a chance to look inside and hopefully it's their last time ever seeing the inside of an ambulance. They get a kick out of it. We also have a game going out with our volunteers out here doing a little game with the kids where they get to use the fire hose to knock over some cones," said Firefighter and Paramedic Derek Endlerle.
