ASHWAUBENON - Kids got the chance to just be kids Saturday. And it was all for a good cause.

It's part of the 26th annual "Big Event for Little Kids."

People gathered at Shopko Hall in Ashwaubenon for plenty of activities!

There were lots of animals too, like baby goats and some slithering snakes!

Kids could also participate in crafts, inflatable games and more.

Organizers say this event is all about the kids!

"Children learn through play, so all the senses you can feel it, you can touch it, you can climb it, you can hear it, you can do it. And that's what this day is all about, is just to give kids the opportunity to play," said Tracy Ardnt.

The event raises money for Encompass Early Education.
The non-profit runs several child care centers in Green Bay and De Pere.

Looking ahead to next year? Mark your calendar! The "Big Event for Little Kids" will take place April 11, 2015.
