PEORIA, Ill. -- Students at Kellar Primary School in Peoria had the chance to spend some extra time with dad Friday.

It was part of the first Doughnuts with Dad event hosted by the School and Parent Teacher Association.

Organizers said the goal was to allow dads some extra bonding time with kids and the opportunity to meet other dads.

"When we're new parents we get involved in a few different things and I think sometimes kids come on later and it might be a little more difficult. I think it's important for us to make sure that we do some of those same things for the younger kids in our family," said Bob Williams, Kellar Primary School dad.

The event also included family photos and a mens wellness booth.
