Over 400 children from every school district in the county turned-out for hours of food and fun, including horse rides, tours of emergency response vehicles, a petting zoo and more. 

They were also treated to wagon rides pulled by Clydesdale horses, golf cart rides, plenty of balloons, and a lunch.
