August Bank Holiday Fun Day

Each year our town holds a Fun Day over the August bank holiday weekend. The last couple of years have been washed out with torrential rain but with gorgeous sunshine on the cards this year we made time within our busy weekend to pop down and have a look.

The kids thought it was great fun and there was lots for them to see and do. There was much more there than previous years and a lot of it geared towards getting little ones involved in the day. My two got to sit in a police van, saw a fire engine and checked out the vintage cars. My Husband was drawn to the Mustang the instant the engine was turned over, naturally ;)

They hooked apples and won themselves a prize, browsed the stalls and chose a couple of new books to bring home. There was even time for a sweet treat and a jump on the bouncy castle.

As we walked around we found an area with some beautiful owls and birds of prey and we were able to see the amazing birds up close. After we'd had a look at everything, had a go on most things and listened to the live band on the stage we made our way back to the car and came across some really cute seats carved into a fallen tree and it's trunk. The kids thought they were fantastic and took a well earned break on them :)
