'Peace Fest' held for Chicago area kids

Saturday's festival was the first of four Saturday events scheduled to take place in July and August to give Cook County kids a safe recreational option, which lessens their risk to street violence.

The kids also got free school immunizations while at the zoo.

Ceasefire leaders, motivational speakers, and community volunteers were also a part of Saturday's event.
