The day's festivities began with the Champ on Church Fun Run, followed by a parade that started at Edmunds Elementary School and ended at Battery Park.
Schools, service organizations, businesses, performers, and volunteers treated kids of all ages to games and activities.
FOX44/ABC22 was a proud sponsor, and hosted a "Weather School" booth. Kids took part in rain gauge races, and spent time practicing on the green screen.
Each participant at the FOX44/ABC22 "Weather School" booth went home with a compass that also acts as a thermometer and whistle.
