Children enjoy fun and games at Dia De La Familia

A healthier lifestyle is promoted in Dia De La Familia.  The 5th annual event is celebrated Saturday at Lake D'Arbonne State Park.

Children's Coalition of Northeast Louisiana Healthy Living Coordinator Mary Barrios describes the day as an opportunity to promote resources about a healthier lifestyle, "but we also wanted to have the community together, to identify ways for families to be more active and to be outside.  This event is a perfect fit."

Along with games and activities for kids, an interactive station is set for the younger crowd.  Kayak instruction, live music, and authentic food made onsite can be enjoyed by adults.

Barrios says in addition to the area's Hispanic community, those interested in family activities and outdoor recreation are welcome to attend.  The celebration is from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Lake D'Arbonne State Park.
