Hundreds of children and their parents stopped by throughout the day at the MassMutual Center where Freedom Fest was held.

The event included plenty of music, food, and fun… and the proceeds from today go towards beautifying local parks and playgrounds, as well as city clean up.

“Some of the local parks around here – we’re trying to get them and beautify them for the kids and make Springfield a better place for these children,” said Juanita Matias of the Freedom of Life Society

The Freedom of Life Society is a local, non-profit organization that raises awareness and funds for other social and community causes.

They plan on hosting another Kids Freedom Festival again next year.
