More than 3,000 families went out to The Rock Ranch in Upson County Saturdayfor some quality time with their loved ones.

The day also brought out former Atlanta Braves first baseman Sid Bream. He signed autographs 20 years almost to the day after his famous slide that sent the Braves to the 1992 World Series.

Speaking of the the event at The Rock Ranch, Bream said: "This is so important to get families back to where they need to be with mom and dads doing things with their kids. When a mom and dad are in a home the chances of a young person staying grounded and staying on the right path is so much greater."

The event was filled with food, sweets and activities for families, including train rides, paddle boats, zip-lining, cane-pole fishing, a petting zoo, and much more.

"It's so wonderful to have the time to spend with your family, when everyone is busy all the time," Tracy Prather said.
