GALLERY: Free children’s fun day at Wisbech’s Horsefair Shopping Centre

FAMILIES flocked to the Horsefair Shopping Centre on Wednesday to enjoy a free children’s fun day.

As youngsters queued patiently to have their faces painted, they were entertained by a balloon modeller and took the chance to have a hug with Donald Duck.

Mr Rainbow performed two magic shows through the day at the Wisbech centre, with children watching in wonder as he made eggs appear and disappear.

Horsefair manager Kevin Smith said: “We had a wonderful turnout. This is the sixth year we have run the event at the end of the school holidays.

“The Horsefair put on this free community event and we are very pleased with the response. It is great to have the public space used for a community event right in the town centre.

“Such a day brings people into town and that is what we need; it is very important.”

Other attractions included the 25ft high Spider Mountain climbing frame, recently shipped into the UK from America. Children also enjoyed making model dragonflies, with representatives of the RSPB.
