Eau Claire (WQOW)- The annual Family Fun Fest was held Saturday at the Indoor Sports Center. It brought hundreds of families out of the January cold and back inside to share in some special activities.
Kids ran and bounced all around, but they weren't the only ones joining in the fun. The sports center provided a petting zoo and agility dog show for four legged friends to get their paws in the action.
Over 40 different vendors and local businesses also came out for Saturday's event.
"So often, in the wintertime especially, it's too cold, and you don't have a place to go and let that energy out. But here's an opportunity to bring your whole family out and just have a good time in all this space. So those kids can go home and take a good nap later on this afternoon and it'll just be a good time," said Michelle Larson with the Indoor Sports Center.
About 1,000 people joined in the family-friendly festivities. The sports center has been going the event for years, and said they will keep doing it, because it keeps getting bigger and better.
