HAMPDEN - Dozens of people gathered in Hampden on Saturday despite the rainy weather, to create a place for families to let loose as the summer winds down at the 38th Annual Hampden Children's Day.

If watching a large parade wasn't enough, kids had the chance to play in bounce houses and play with nerf guns at the event. 


"It's so important to show kids the benefit of pulling together as a community and doing things together as a community," said Kurt Mathies, a committee member. 


Live music, fireworks and delicious foods, there were things for the entire family to enjoy. It's the little things that bring smiles to their faces.
