VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- Bounce houses, costumed characters, and face painting were part of the excitement at Landstown Commons Sunday.

A children's festival gave families an opportunity to have fun with proceeds from the festival benefiting The Up Center's adoption and foster care program.

The Up Center offers a number of services including some that protect children and strengthen families.

The event originally was supposed to take place Saturday, but inclement weather pushed it to its rain date of July 30.
