More than 20,000 people joined in on the fun in downtown El Paso this weekend. KidsPalooza, in its 6th year, proved to be a huge draw for all ages. The all-day family event featured children’s concerts, games, painting, “Make & Take” craft workshops, tours plus free transportation to a variety of educational stops throughout the downtown area. The El Paso Exploreum and Museum of Art were also open with exhibits and assisted in keeping those in attendance cool and out of the weather. There were even monster trucks and a variety of food vendors on hand to round out the event.
