BILLINGS -

The postponed Well-A-Falooza Festival was well worth the wait today.

The first annual event was postponed in the last week of May due to the weather. Friday, many people turned out to enjoy everything from cooking to zumba. Organizers said it's a fun way for young people to improve their lives. Well-a-falooza is a wellness festival for youth in the community. "It's targeted for ages 13 - 25. We have rock combing, music, yoga, tons of fun stuff, inflatables, hoola hoops, sports; Anything to get kids involved in the community and involved in something active," Youth Move Coordinator, Wend Brodis said.

The event was spearheaded to honor mental health awareness month in May. Organizers said it's a proactive approach to fight the rising suicide rate in the state.
