The Friends of Turtle River hosted this family event to bring families closer to the outdoors.

Kids and parents went fishing, made arts and crafts, and participated in the minnow races.

There was a cook-out, and a scavenger hunt for kids to visit every site in the park.

The president of Friends of Turtle River says many families are turning this event into a summertime tradition.
