The Waco Mammoth National Monument celebrated spring's arrival with its Mammoths on the March festival on Saturday.

The national park hosted dozens of people for its annual event.

There was a trackless train, a petting zoo, a flower planting station, and so much more.

Park rangers hoped Saturday's event showed parents just how much fun kids can have at a national park.

"The Waco Mammoth National Monument is known for a herd of mammoths. That means moms and babies. We figured this was appropriate to celebrate youth and families, so this is definitely a family-friendly event," site manager Raegan King said.

King expected at least 2,000 people.

Although the festival ends at 5 p.m. Saturday, you can always check out the park's mammoth fossils throughout the year.
