      Hundreds of families came out for the big day that focuses on celebrating education for young children.

      "It's good to raise awareness in our community about all of the great things that we already have going on for young children so we have a lot of schools, preschools, kinder music and different activities that are available in our area that are here representing themselves and showing families what kind of activities and resources there are for young children here in the Grand Traverse area," said Dagny Monette, one of the organizers.

      There were kid friendly activities and specials all along Front Street. Stores also displayed children's works of art in their windows for the day too.
