For most of the afternoon the weather held and the park was bustling with activity from sporting events such as military fitness and tennis to giant slides and dodgems at the fair.

Demonstrations were held by the emergency services with visitors allowed to go inside some of the emergency vehicles on display and young drivers were even allowed their first taste behind the wheel at the Safe Driving test area.

Performances kept the atmosphere alive throughout the afternoon with dozens of entertainers performing on the big stage and throughout the park. The theme of the afternoon was based around Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and plenty of visitors wandered around the different stalls and activities dressed as their favourite characters from the popular children’s novel.
