There was plenty to do for football fans and everyone else Saturday.

Thousands of fans participated in the RazorFest activities surrounding Arkansas' Spring Game on Saturday at Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

"It's the first time we brought our girls to the stadium so it's fun to get them to come and just kind of see the Razorback stadium," Kelly Stamp said. "They are not quite ready for a full game yet but they can kind of get a glimpse of it."

There were inflatable jumping houses and giant slides. For the more adventurous, there was a form of bungee jumping. RazorFest helps raise money and awareness for Champions For Kids, an organization that helps children from low-income families.

"Not only for entertainment, but also to bring awareness to people of some of the challenges that yoiung people face in our country today and certainly Arkansas and NWA," said Rick Schaeffer, whose wife, Adelaide, founded Champions For Kids.

There was fun for all ages.

"I love coming out and supporting the Razorbacks and then also allowing kids to see something they can look forward to in the future," said William Lang.

Two (possible) future Razorbacks, Keiren Mienter and Matthew Martinez, were there. They were asked why they wanted to wear a Razorbacks uniform.

"Cause I like to tackle," said Mienter.

"Cause I want to be the quarterback," Martinez said.

The love for the Razorbacks begin early.

"The girls have more Razorback clothes than I do and they know how to call the Hogs since they were babies," Stamp said. "They'll grow up loving the Hogs just as much as we do."
