It was a day all about the kids, Saturday, May 7, 2016.

The sun shone brightly, as it usually does on the first Saturday in May, for the largest free festival for kids in the region.

There were no end of activities and delights, and the legendary Fred Penner took the stage in early afternoon to enthusiastic applause. Local singer songwriter Dawson Rutledge opened up the show.
