There was plenty to do for everyone from a climbing wall and an arts and craft tent to a Punch and Judy show and performances from Next Generation Youth Theatre.

One of the most popular attractions on the day was the face painting, with queues from the moment they opened until the moment they closed.

On the day between 1,500 and 2,000 people enjoyed the celebrations.
