Behavioral health center holds festival for families

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - It was OK to get a little messy in Allentown on Thursday.

Progression Behavioral Health Services held a "family fun" and "special needs awareness" day.

Activities included face painting, crafts, outdoor games and dancing.

"Progressions" provides behavioral health rehabilitation services to children and their families, but Thursday was all about kicking back and letting the kids be kids.

"This just allows us to take a moment and step back and go, this is why we're really here. It's the family. It's the kids, said Deborah Nelson.

This is the third year for the event.
