KIDS FESTIVAL
BRISTOL, Va. -

The Fraternal Order of Eagles hosted the Kids R' Our Future Festival at Cumberland Square Park Saturday.

The festival was free to the public and featured several fun activities like face painting, hay rides, and arts & crafts.

Several local businesses were on hand to give out freebies.

Sonya Whittaker of the Twin City Eagles tells us events like these are a great way to give back to the community. "We have families that need stuff so we try to get them stuff, like today everything here is absolutely free. No one is charged anything and it's just a day of fun," said Sonya Whittaker.

The Fraternal Order of Eagles hosts several benefits like the one today with several organizations in the community.
