(Alexandria, MN)  This Sunday kids are being told to get outside; and they like it!  For the 6th year in a row two organizations have partnered with a lot of great businesses, organizations and individuals to put on a free event for kids.  It's called the Youth Outdoor Activity Day.  The Viking Sportsmen and Pheasants Forever are once again planning this year's event.  It features close to 40 different outdoor activities, a meal, a t-shirt and more.  The best part for parents is that it's all free of charge.  One of the organizers of the event is Dean Krebs.  Dean is the president of the local Pheasants Forever organization and is on the board of the Viking Sportsmen.  He talks about what makes this so special (AUDIO BELOW)
