"Day in the Park With Dad" Event Held in Odessa

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - It was all about dad's on Saturday at the park.

First Five Permian Basin and the University of Texas of the Permian Basin hosted a "Day in the Park with Dad" at McKinney Park in Odessa.

An inflatable obstacle course, giant foam construction blocks and t-shirt screen printing were just a few of the stations set up.

The event promoted quality time with dad.

"I can't stress enough the involvement fathers need to have. Too often we all leave it up to mom. It's our job to be in there; do our equal part. Make sure your kids grow up knowing they're loved from both sides," said Martin Castaneda, Fatherhood Coordinator of First Five Basin.

To continue the fun, movie in the park began at sundown and sat back watching Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
