It was a day filled with animals, games, face painting and the crowd favorite, snow cones.
Everyone enjoyed themselves at the 5th annual Rock the Village festival. It was in the Trinity UMC parking lot near 56th and Pine Lake.
"It's called Everywhere Fun Fair and our vocation bible school has been happening Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday," Michael Tully, Director of Music Ministries, said. "And this is kind of the wrap up, the fair itself."
Tully said although Trinity puts on the event, it's really for the entire community.
And for kids, there was just about every activity you could dream up. Prizes were handed out at every game.
Shades the Clown was there making balloon animals and balloon mermaids.
And fest-goers could get almost anything painted on their faces. There were instruments kids could play, too.
And the best part? It didn't cost a dime.
"Everything is free here," a 9-year-old boy eating a snow cone said. "Snow cones, all-you-can-eat hot dogs."
"It's just a great mix of everybody and that's really the whole point of our event here is just to open it up to the community and let them know it's a great time to just come together for food and fellowship and good family fun," Tully said.
