Mark-wahlberg-webA week before Father's Day, celebrity dads stretched their paternal legs on Sunday afternoon at the 21st annual A Time for Heroes carnival in Los Angeles. 

Disney and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation hosted the likes of Mark Wahlberg and his wife, Rhea Durham, with the actor toting his youngest boy, Brendan, around the festival grounds.

The Wahlbergs were treated to safari-themed fun with appearances from Disney characters, a denim decorating booth from American Eagle's 77kids and Pink's hot dogs.

David Duchovny also turned up with his wife, Téa Leoni, and their brood, catching a performance by singer Jesse McCartney

Other famous families included Denise Richards with her two girls; boxer Laila Ali and her bambino, "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston; and Olympic hottie Evan Lysacek

The carnival is expected to raise $1.5 million for the Elizabeth Glaser foundation, which works in 17 countries to prevent and treat pediatric AIDS.
