Melissa Harris of Forest Park said her son, Blake Davidson, enjoyed Triton College's annual Fall Family Fun Fest on Saturday.

"Kids get to do different, fun activities like decorate pumpkins and see chickens," she said. "It's educational."

Harris and hundreds of other families attended the fest, located at the college's botanical gardens.

"A lot of families have been to the fest before, so it's become a staple for them," said Rolando Martinez, assistant director for admission services.

Martinez said the event has grown. He estimated around 1,000 people attended the event this year, which is more than last year's attendance. Families were encouraged to participate in The Great Triton Treasure Hunt that takes participants to visit different locations around the college.
