"Kidz explore" day a hit with entire family

Posted: Updated:

What do lizards, dogs and Fred Flintstone have in common?  They were all having a yabba–dabba–doo time at the Mitchell Event Center.

Families flocked to Mitchell for the annual "Kidz Explore" event.   Some of the events included a reptile exhibit, pet adoptions and bungee basketball.   Wal–Mart also taught children proper ways to budget in a "kids grocery store."  For program designers, fun is the name of the game.

"It's just something that we enjoy doing, watching kids faces as they come in and when they leave and when they see Fred or whatever character we have, makes everything worth it."

More than 2,000 people were expected to attend the event.
