The funfest included water wheels and bouncing blow-up inflatables for children to play in, pictures with superheroes and live music all free to families looking for good, clean fun.
Superheroes Batman, Batgirl, Captain America and Spiderman visited families Saturday afternoon to give a short presentation to the children before posing for photos with the "Bat-mobile"
"Treat everybody good and good things will happen to you," Batman told the children who were sitting in front of the stage, hanging on his every word with wide eyes.
"OK, let's go over the four things we learned today. Say it with me," he told the youngsters. "One: Never give up. Two: Always do the right thing. Three: Help other people. Four: Don't be a bully."
One toddler was particularly excited to get his picture with Batman as he waited with his mom at the back of the long greeting line.
"He likes all of them, but Batman is his favorite," she said.
He heard her mention Batman and quickly added, "What I like about him is he kills all the bad guys so the good guys win."
"He teaches us to be good, right?" his mom said.
"Yes, he does!" he answered.
Aside from the superhero excitement, another family had fun with the inflatable features.

The day was packed with other activities that included music from
