Day For Kids

Lake Wichita Park was filled with children Saturday for the 11th annual Boys & Girls Club Day For Kids. This event is set aside each year to honor the children. They enjoyed face painting, archery, games and many other activities, as well as plenty of refreshments. Organizers say this event is more than just play time. They hope it sends a strong message to parents.

"A day that they can go out and have a good time and we encourage them not to do this just today, we want them to spend quality time with their kids everyday," said Carlos Martinez, director of operations for the Boys & Girls Club.

Festivities kicked off at 10am and lasted until noon at the football complex in Lake Wichita Park.
