Games and activities were provided for kids.
Hundreds of people gathered Saturday to celebrate a Charlottesville neighborhood with a focus on health and education.
The 16th annual Westhaven Community Day featured more than 50 different organizations set up along Hardy Drive. Family physicians and pediatricians offered free sports physicals and AIDS testing. Organizers say this community day is designed to bring neighbors together.
"We've been doing it for about 16 years and this is the one time that we bring people to the community because a lot of people serve the community and don't really know the community or have been into the community," said Joy Johnson of the Westhaven Nursing Clinic.
The event also featured free massages and games for kids.
It was made possible by a planning committee of organizations including the city of Charlottesville, United Way, and Jefferson Area Board for Aging.
