LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The end of summer freedom is nearing, and kids are celebrating before they head back to school.

The Parenting Place held their annual Children's Festival at Myrick Park Saturday morning.

There were 20 different events for kids to participate in, including a mud kitchen.

The event is a way for kids to use their imagination and develop their social and cognitive skills.

"I think it says a lot about the community. It says parents want their kids to experience this type of event. It says they want to support the parenting place. We have a long list of sponsors this year, which is phenomenal. Our board members are here helping out, our staff members are here, bringing their family members to help us out. It really speaks to how wonderfully, collaborative our community really is," said Jodi Widuch, executive director for The Parenting Place.

About 400 people attended the event this year.

The money raised supports the free Parenting Program.
