Families tossed, paddled and climbed Saturday during the city of Santa Clarita’s Youth Sports and Healthy Families Festival at the Santa Clarita Sports Complex.

The free event lasted from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and aimed to promote healthy lifestyles and affordable recreation in Santa Clarita.

Richard Carr, recreation supervisor for the city, estimated that between 2,500 and 3,000 people would turn out throughout the course of the event Saturday.

“We are trying to get families to come out, try different activities and hopefully find one that they like,” Carr said. “It’s a great opportunity for kids and their families to experience a variety of recreational activities.”

Activities at the festival included baseball, soccer, cheerleading, rock climbing, paddle boarding, sand volleyball and many more.

In addition to the Youth Sports activities, the Sports Complex also featured information for family’s looking to live healthier lives.

“A healthy, active lifestyle is what we are here to promote at the festival,” Carr said. “It is important because by staying healthy and staying fit you will have a better quality of life.”
