Mothers of Hope host Ultimate Family Reunion in Kalamazoo.

Kalamazoo comes together on the city's northside for the tenth annual Ultimate Family Reunion.

Mothers of Hope hosted the event at La Crone Park on Saturday afternoon. The group is a non-profit organization helping fight substance abuse, poverty and violence in Kalamazoo.

In addition to games and music at the event, families also had a chance to check out the community resources.

"It gives people the opportunity to meet and get to know each other and to learn different things,” said Angela Coleman, an attendee at the event. “If you need help, need to get your kids in school, they have all of this for you."

Organizers said they expected thousands at the family reunion.
