PEORIA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) – Two West Valley cities will face off in an inaugural festival for a good cause.

On Saturday, March 3, the Laughton Team and Military Assistance Mission (MAM) will kick off the first Peoria vs. Glendale Festival.

The festival will be an all-day family event that will include bounce houses, food trucks, games, face painting and a city-versus-city tug-of-war competition.

There are three age groups for the tug-of-war: 8-14, 15-19, and 20+. Each group could win a cash prize of up to $500.

According to George Laughton, co-founder of the Laughton Team, the best part of the event will be contributing to MAM, a group that provides financial and moral support to active duty military, their families and wounded soldiers.

Local businesses that want to sponsor the event can purchase a booth; the proceeds from the sponsorships will go to MAM. Interested businesses can contact Caroline Porter.

The event is free for all ages and takes place at Tyr Tactical in Peoria.
