Seriously, temperatures weren't that high early Saturday afternoon.
But 12-year-old Owen Wright still managed to break a sweat as he ran between bounce houses at the 30th anniversary celebration for Jefferson City Medical Group (JCMG).
They each included fun activities, Owen said.
It was a tie between the obstacle course and the fire station, he said.
"They're both just so fun," he added. "That one (the obstacle course), you can like jump over stuff and climb. That one (fire station) you can bounce around and slide down."
For children in its Kids Zone, the event held on a parking lot behind the medical group at 1241 W. Stadium Blvd., featured bounce houses, face painting, balloon animals, a 360-degree photo booth and chances to explore emergency vehicles.
Dinner and dessert options abounded at food trucks parked alongside the ad hoc venue.
Once the Kids Zone closed, Five Turn Knot, a Jefferson City-based party band, was available for entertainment.
Adults could also enjoy a beer garden.
Ilana Holland, JCMG director of marketing and communications, said the celebration has been in the works for several months.
"We are having a celebration for the community as a 'thank you' for trusting us with their health care for 30 years," Holland said. "This is also a 'thank you' to staff."
Holland, who recently joined JCMG, said when she arrived about two months ago, organizers where focused on making the event a "big celebration for Jefferson City and the surrounding community."
It was intended to be something for everyone.
An idea for the event was that organizers wanted something that offered a little something for everybody, she said. But it needed to be big, she said.
"Five Turn Knot draws a great crowd. People love them. We wanted to offer that free concert as a celebration," Holland said.
As light rain threatened, Holland said the rain plan was to just roll with it as best they could.
Rain was not on the mind of 5-year-old Lucy Klutho.
When she arrived at the event, Lucy got in line to have her face painted, eventually receiving a painting of a mermaid.
She said she has a birthday coming up.
"I'm going to take treats to school," she said. "And I get presents and get to eat cake. I love my birthday."
