Several families spent the day Saturday at the Texas State Aquarium celebrating Earth Day.

Kids and even parents joined in on the fun all while learning about ways to be eco-friendly and help mother earth.. all while having a good time.

Nishy George who was visiting the Aquarium Saturday with her family told 3 News, "it was a little bit of obstacle courses and they were talking about recycling. We listened to a little bit of that, watched a couple of shows, and then had fun at the splash pad."

There was also an Easter egg hunt Saturday morning on the Aquarium's front lawn.
