Marshall County families gathered for a day of fun Saturday, at the 20th annual Marshall County Family Fun Day at Mike Miller Park in Draffenville. The event brought businesses and organizations to set up activity stations, such as a rock painting area, and local first responders brought trucks and equipment for children to view. In addition, families could enjoy free inflatables and a petting zoo, and take the chance to nab some tasty frozen treats.
The annual family day event concluded Marshall County Family Week, traditionally observed the first full week in September. The week featured a family fishing day at the Clarks River National Wildlife Refuge, programs at all three branches of the library and a Bark in the Park fundraiser event for the Marshall County Animal Shelter.
