Fun Fest hit Canyon View Park on Friday morning. The Rocky Mountain PBS puts on the event annually and invites community groups and business to interact with area kids. And hundreds of kids showed up on Friday for the event.
It's geared toward families with kids aged 2 to 10 and there were tons of activities of all types for the kids. They also had the opportunity to meet some of their favorite PBS characters.
"They're learning all sorts of things that they can do in the community and they're also learning some skills. Healthy eating is one of the big topics today as well as summer reading," said RMPBS regional director Penny Mitchell.
Organizers say the parents also learn a lot and are introduced to all sorts of activities that their kids can participate in throughout the summer.
This is also one of the best outreach methods for many community groups when it comes to kids.
The biggest hit on this hot summer morning was the Grand Junction Fire Department, which turned its fire hose into a refreshing way to cool off for all the young attendees.
