Community leaders and businesses gathered at the Veterans Park on Saturday for the fifth annual Children Spring Festival.

The festival was hosted by Brush Country CASA. There were vendors such as Jim Wells and Duval County Child Welfare Boards, Community Action Corporation of South Texas , and the JWC District Attorney's Office in honor of Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month.

Families participated in free games, food and entertainment while getting valuable information on financial investments, drug prescription disposal and teen programs in the area.

Brush County CASA wants to thank DeeAnn Torres, Ventura Garcia and Margie Gonzalez for the bicycle sponsors. The bicycles were part of a raffle for the children in attendance.
