Ag Magic taking kids on a journey

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The LSU AgCenter is taking kids and kids at heart on a journey this weekend. It's the tenth year of Ag Magic at the Parker Coliseum.

The event takes participants on an interactive journey through Louisiana agriculture.

It allows them to see the connection between the food they eat and the farm it comes from all the while having fun.

"It's a hands-on event so they get to touch cotton," says Frankie Gould of LSU Ag Center. "They get to pet alligators. They get to hold chicks. They get to dig for sweet potatoes, dig for worms, and learn about different parts of agriculture."

The kids will also learn about the environment, the body and bugs. Ag Magic is open to the public Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
