Mayor Dean hosts annual field day

Posted: Updated:

A little rain didn't stop kids from having fun at L.P. Field Saturday afternoon.

It was all part of Mayor Karl Dean's annual Field Day.

The free event featured football games, a zip line and an inflatable obstacle course.

Several Tennessee Titan players also made an appearance, including Michael Preston, Fernando Velasco and Collin Mooney.

Mayor Dean says the event is all about showing kids that exercise can be fun.

"The idea is just to encourage kids to develop healthy habits early, to learn to live healthy which means getting exercise every day and exercise can be fun. I think everybody's having fun. We're all a little wet but that's ok, we're not going to melt," said Mayor Dean.
