Cleveland Councilman Zack Reed hosted the annual Family Unity in the Park event at Luke Easter Park on Saturday.

Reed welcomed the crowd to the park to kickoff an afternoon and evening of festivities and family fun, including food vendors, medical screenings and a kiddie park. This year marks the 12th year of the very popular event, featuring fireworks and a great line-up of musical entertainment.

For the first time, Cleveland police officers set up a booth to interact with families and children. A group of 12 volunteer police officers passed out police badges and worked with kids in various activities, including crayon art and face painting.

Would love to see your photos from the event. Send us your photos at pics@19actionnews.com!
