WESTPORT -

Over 1,000 people turned out to Earthplace in Westport over the weekend to enjoy some fun fall activities and to help celebrate the organization's 60th anniversary. 

Children of all ages took part in many unique activities like eating a doughnut off a string and swimming in a pool of corn.

"It's for kids to have fun and to engage outside in different ways with animals and with exhibits and with fun rides and stuff,” said Tony McDowell, executive director of Earthplace. 

All proceeds will benefit the center.
