Some families in Charleston enjoyed a free day of fun at the University of Charleston.
Mountaineer Montessori School hosted Sunday Funday on the UC lawn.
There were carnival games, free snow cones, inflatables and more.
But along with the fun, there was also a focus on learning , with educational exhibits from community groups like the Clay Center, Charleston Fire Department, and Kanawha County Sheriff's office for kids and parents to check out.
"Education is so important,” volunteer Shelly Winowich said. “It doesn't matter where you go to school or what your socio-economic background is. We’re just about fun, having a great day in the sunshine and we appreciate everybody that came."
The school also took up a collection to support the hungry through the Manna Meal organization.
Later this fall, students will also be helping that cause with a food drive.
