The event is designed to bring the community together for a day of family fun.

In addition to the various activities and games, there was school supplies, student health services, and more—provided completely free of charge to Mansfield ISD students. Food trucks and bounce houses were also available on site.

The community event featured a special appearance by David and Tamela Mann!
