Free concerts, health screenings and a look into African American history were just some of the reasons people came out to the event.
Mothers like Kelli Spencer who brought her entire immediate family to the KwanzaaFest, said she was looking forward to the free health screenings.
"Definitely me personally, I don't even have health care coverage at my job so it's definitely going to save me a lot of money," said spencer. "It's very important."
Healthfest, which is a part of KwanzaaFest gave attendees a chance to get free health screenings, shots and on-site testing.
"we know we have to embrace the tenants of Kwanzaa and be about creating venues, Kumba, creativity, creating venues in our community that address soem of our needs," said Price.
The event which was held at the Dallas Fair Park ended today. KwanzaaFest was free and open to the public and NBC5 was a proud sponsor of the event.
