Held at Town Center Park, the annual event drew large crowds throughout the day, playing host to multiple dance teams from local studio Innovative Dance and showcasing the talents of jugglers, magicians and other entertainers.

"We love making the world a happier place. We are so excited to be here," Regina Wollrabe said, known by her alias Cha Cha the Clown to the children she entertains.

Other groups, such as the Boy Scouts of America, made their presence known at the event with activities aimed at awareness of what scouting has to offer.

"The best part about coming to Fun In the Park is interacting with the kids and getting them excited about scouting," Barry Derlago, cubmaster of Troop 194 said. SPOKESMAN PHOTO: MADISON STATEN  - Judy Stoug paints live for visitors at Fun in the Park.

"It's great to see these kids having a good time. It's about community," event participant Cathi Davidson said.
