Kids get moving at Healthy Kids Day


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Hundreds of folks brought their kids to Empie Park this weekend, taking advantage of the beautiful weather and getting active.

Healthy Kids Day got kids off the couch and and out the door.

The city of Wilmington and the YMCA offered dozens of outdoor activities and classes for families to choose from at no cost.

This year the "Get Fit Court" offered a variety of new classes including: family boot camp, salsa class, zumba class, and a Taikwondo Demo.

Local teams led sports stations in everything from tennis to t-ball.

Healthy Kids Day exposes children to outdoor activities in an effort to build a happier and healthier kid.
