(WDAY TV) -- What an afternoon to be at the park as People packed into Turtle River State Park for a little family time.

This is the annual Turtle Fest. The Friends of Turtle River hosted this family event to bring families closer to the outdoors.

They went fishing, made arts and crafts... and had a little fun competition in the minnow races. There was a cook-out and a scavenger hunt so children would visit every site in the park.

The president of Friends of Turtle River says many families are turning this event into a summertime tradition.
